Boys of '83 Dinner at the Marriott
The 30th anniversary of Pompey’s Third Division Championship win in 1983 is to be marked by a celebratory ‘Boys of ‘83’ charity dinner to be held at the Marriott Hotel in Cosham, Portsmouth on Saturday evening 6 July 2013.
An expected sell-out attendance of almost 250 Pompey fans will honour each of the players and celebrate their achievement in bringing a championship title to the club after a gap of 20 years.
Guests will enjoy a three-course meal during an evening which will be rich in football nostalgia involving personal memories and anecdotes from the players involved, together with film footage from the games and TV interviews from that season.
All proceeds from this charity dinner will be passed to the ‘Faith and Football’ charity to support our work in providing sporting and educational programmes for disadvantaged youngsters in the most deprived areas of Portsmouth and Plymouth.
This dinner follows upon last year’s hugely successful ‘Boys of ‘87’ Anniversary function which celebrated the 25th anniversary of Pompey’s promotion in 1987 to the First Division under Alan Ball.
