Rees Set For Town Return?

6 November 2014

FORMER Town striker Tony Rees could be back to grace Blundell Park once more in next month's Chairman's Challenge game.

Rees, dubbed the master of the back-heel, has promised to try and revise his work schedule to line-up with other ex Town players against a team of sponsors.

The Welshman had started out in the Aston Villa youth system and was part of the team which won the 1980 FA Youth Cup. He left Aston Villa without appearing for the first team, but went on to play nearly 300 games in the Football League, for Birmingham City, Peterborough United, Shrewsbury Town, Barnsley, Grimsby Town and West Bromwich Albion, appeared in all four divisions, and won one full cap for Wales.
