IT was a case of friends reunited when players of a former football club met up at a special reunion earlier this month.
More than 20 people who used to represent Amble Vikings attended the get-together.
The club was successful during the 1970s, winning a string of trophies, before folding at the end of the decade/beginning of the 1980s.
Tom Eason, who was both a player and manager for the Vikings – who played their matches at Amble Welfare – was behind the reunion.
And he was pleased with how the event went.
“It was a good evening. I was quite happy with it and everyone enjoyed it,” said Tom, who also had help organising the meet-up from Foster Young and Ian McManus.
Tom, from Main Street, in Red Row, added: “Most of the players turned up and I was really pleased that they made the effort to come along.”
The reunion took place on Saturday, December 10, at Amble’s Bede Street Social Club.
There was a buffet, music and a display of old photographs, while ex-players enjoyed reminiscing about old times.
The players who attended the reunion all signed a special football.
Tom thanked caterer Michael Spears.
