Hero Hamilton returns for Legends Lunch

23 March 2016

Hamilton the latest legend to return to the U's for Hartlepool reunion

We are delighted to announce that another of Oxford United's true legends will be flying in to join us for a very special reunion.

Northern Irish international striker Billy Hamilton became a Cult Hero at The Manor as he led the line in the mid 80s and formed a magnificent partnership with John Aldridge up front.

As soon as we told Billy that the Boys of 86 were going to be our guests for a Legends Lunch, proudly sponsored by the Sheehan Group, ahead of the home game against Hartlepool he wanted to rejoin his former teammates, and 001 taxis have very kindly offered to bring Billy to and from the event when he flies in that morning from his home in Northern Ireland.

The event marks the 30th anniversary of the U’s beating QPR 3-0 at Wembley on 20th April 1986.
Billy will join skipper Malcolm Shotton, Gary Briggs, Dave Langan, Les Phillips, Trevor Hebberd, Alan Judge, Steve Hardwick, Neil Slatter, Jeremy Charles, Andy Thomas, coach Ray Graydon and manager Maurice Evans’ wife Mary and son Paul, who have all confirmed that they will be joining us for an event hosted by Peter Rhoades-Brown, with the remaining players hoping to join us subject to work commitments.
