Old Friends Reunite At The Dale

26 October 2021

It was friends reunited at the Crown Oil Arena on Saturday, as two best friends met up for the first time in 50 years.

Ken and Tom had lost touch for over half a century, despite both attending Dale games regularly.

The pair were in the same class at Rochdale Grammar School and became best pals, with Ken going on to be Tom's best man at his wedding.

They lost touch shortly afterwards, but after Tom had spotted Ken taking part in our 2021/22 Season Card video, he got in touch with the club to ask for his old friend's contact details.

The pair then exchanged numbers and arranged to meet at Saturday's match against Sutton United.

Both of them brought along photos to reminisce over old times, before watching Dale win 3-2 in dramatic fashion from the Sandy Lane.
