Programme Preview: Peterborough United

Special Tribute Cover In Memory of Billy Ayre

12 April 2019

A special tribute cover in memory of Blackpool's 1992 promotion-winning manager Billy Ayre fronts the programme for the visit of Peterborough United this weekend.

Ahead of the 17th anniversary of his passing, artist Purdonkey has produced a sensational drawing that encapsulates everything about King Billy, including a nod to him wearing the number 15 on the touchline.

Inside the programme, there's a look back at Billy's time in charge at Bloomfield Road, plus contributions from Tony Rodwell and a message from Billy's daughter, Rachel. 

Current boss Terry McPhillips, who played under Billy Ayre at Halifax, also shares his memories of the man in his programme notes.  

You'll find all this, as well as the usual content, in tomorrow's match programme, priced at £2.
