Peter Reid to auction off his FA Cup Runners up medal

Comments (6)

The OS is reporting:

Everton legend Peter Reid is to auction his 1986 FA Cup runners-up medal to raise funds for cash-strapped Plymouth Argyle.

I have every admiration that Peter Reid has taken such an honourable and sympathetic stance to help in any way he can, but I also sincerely hope that our beloved Everton will attempt to be the highest bidder in order to honour him and add it to the Everton Collection.

I for one would be willing to donate towards this cause, as I also lived in Plymouth for many years and they are also a very special set of fans.

Is anyone trying to arrange some action?

A grand gesture by Mr Reid and one that is appreciated by Plymouthians.

There are already plans to hand back the medal to Peter Reid.

See to help

Perhaps Gosling will buy it to make amends for doing his home-town club out of a share of a transfer fee?

No... thought not

Mr Reid has also been paying Argyle's heating bill and the youth players wages out of his own pocket. He is becoming a legend down here for his attitude and has yet to complain about the predicament.

What a gesture if true. A proper football man...

Apart from Ball, I've never seen an Everton player who hated losing as much as Reid. A legend.
