Plaque unveiled at old home of Grays Athletic

THERE are always mixed feelings at such occasions. We are sure it was the same at The Den, Ayresome Park and Roker Park.

Phil Sammons joined former managers Jeff and Fred Saxton on Thursday evening at Saxton Park for the unveiling of a monument to honour the club.

As part of the housing development that now sits on the land that once was The Recreation Ground, Weston Homes decided to commemorate the club’s former home with a monument.

Now Chief Executive at the Essex FA, Sammons made 748 appearances for the Blues between 1982 and 1997.
