BBC Radio Nottingham’s Colin Slater has been inducted into the Notts County Hall of Fame as part of his 80th birthday celebrations.
Colin’s friends, colleagues and a number of surprise guests came together on Friday night to mark the occasion in the 1862 Suite at Meadow Lane.
Ex-Notts personalities over a variety of eras, including Howard Wilkinson, Don Masson, Les Bradd, Steve Cherry, Mick Jones, Tommy Johnson and Ian Richardson, paid tribute to the Voice of Notts County on an unforgettable night for those in attendance.
A series of presentations were made to Colin to commemorate his service to journalism and football, including items from the Football Association, Football League, Sporting Hearts for his charity contributions and BBC Radio Nottingham, who obtained a copy of the matchday programme from the first game that he covered on the air.
Notts honoured Colin, who has contributed so much to the Notts over the years, from helping to save the club from extinction in the 1960s to hosting events and pre-match entertainment, by making him the first non-footballing member of the Hall of Fame.
Everyone at Meadow Lane would like to congratulate Colin on his deserved inclusion in the Hall of Fame and wish him the very happiest of returns on his actual birthday, Friday 28 February.
