The Dale Trust has announced, that after many years of talking about, at long, long last, the Rochdale Former Players Association has been launched.
The aim of the Rochdale FPA is to reunite those who have worn the Dale shirt over the years, with the intentions of hosting two or three events each season for the benefit of its members. Membership is free to anyone who has played at least one first team game for the club.
The first event will take place early in the season when the Dale Trust will be inviting former players to attend a home game at Crown Oil Arena.
Quite where the Rochdale FPA ends up will be down to its members. It will be run by the Dale Trust for the first twelve months, and then they are hoping a Committee can be formed amongst the Former Players to take it on.
A dedicated website has been set up: www.RochdaleFPA.com
