Further to Joe Thompson’s announcement on Tuesday, Rochdale Football Club can confirm that Joe will be at Saturday’s League One fixture against Coventry City to allow supporters to say farewell.
He will be on the pitch before the game, where a special presentation will take place. We hope you’ll take your seats/ your position in the Sandy Lane as early as possible to show Joe your support.
We’ll also fully back and encourage an applause in the 15th minute of the match, if that’s something supporters would like to do.
In addition, we’re delighted to announce that an ‘Evening with Joe Thompson’ dinner will be held later this season, while the Crown Oil Arena will play host to a testimonial for Joe. Details of/ dates for the two events will be announced in due course.
Joe will continue to remain a close friend of the Club, and will work closely with us in an ambassador role.
