Former Player's Association

19 May 2023

The Rochdale AFC Former Player’s Association are looking to add to their current database.

Over 60 former Dale players are enrolled in the Association, with many returning to the Crown Oil Arena this season as guests of the club.

Last season, players such as Shaun Reid, Paul Buter, Gareth Griffiths and many more were invited to be a guest speaker in the club’s hospitality lounge before a match.

Keith Hicks, former Dale defender and Head of Community Trust for over 30 years, is appealing for more of our ex-players to join.

“We have a strong database of former players already but are always on the lookout for more,” he commented.

“Those who have been guests of the club this season have spoken highly of their visits and are eager to return.

“We are also looking at organising other events such as sportsman’s dinner, golf days and re-union dinners.

“The Former Player’s Association is a great way to ensure the club remain connected with those who have served the club, as well as allowing supporters to reminisce on days gone by.”

Any former players who are interested, or if supporters know of a former player who may not already be involved, should contact Keith on 07861640958 or email
