 The Finalists

 Russell Gordon
 Russell signed from Cheltenham Town in November 1986. Previously he had played for Coventry City, Brighton & Hove Albion, Banbury, Dudley and Stafford Rangers. Russell scored a hat-trick on his league debut against Wolverhampton United - the first player to do so since 1935-36. In total he played 238 games in 6 seasons with the Lambs and scored 84 Goals. Russell was a member of the FA Vase winning team in 1989. He is famously known to be Sam Holiday's favourite player while he was Sports Editor at the Tamworth Herald winning many ‘Man of the Match’ awards. He is sadly no longer with us having passed away suddenly in 2015 aged just 51.
 Steve Cartwright
 Steve or ‘Chuchie’ as he is better known, is a local lad having joined the Lambs from Mercian League Club Picadilly. He played in two stints as a defender for the club having had a period away when his strong performances in defence earned him a transfer to Football League outfit Colchester United, who signed him for a 4 figure fee in 1988. He made 12 first team appearances for the Us before returning to The Lamb later in the season and helped the club win the FA Vase. Following this second spell with the club he went on to join Atherstone United. In his time with the Lambs Steve clocked up 348 games over 9 seasons and scored 5 goals.
 Mark Hallam
 Mark is well known as one of the ‘H Bombers’ in a deadly striking partnership he formed with Warren Haughton. He began his career with Leicester United and went on to play for Boston United, Ilkeston Town, Hednesford Town, Gloucester City and Worcester City. He signed for the Lambs from Forest Green Rovers in 1998 and his fearless approach to the game upset many defences as a traditional centre forward. In a four and-a-half year period with the club he played 237 games and scored 115 goals, helping the club rise to the Football Conference. Mark went on to play for Halesowen Town after he left the Lambs in 2003.
 Dale Belford
 The Belford name is synonymous with Tamworth FC and Dale has had a very long association with the club alongside other family members. Before arriving at the Lamb in 1988 ‘keeper Dale had been at Aston Villa, Sutton Coldfield Town, Notts County, VS Rugby and Nuneaton Borough. He was a member of the famous FA Vase winning side in 1989 before moving back to Sutton Coldfield Town in 1990. He then had further spells with the Lambs during the 1990s, 2000s and 2010s, amassing appearances over 4 decades including Manager. In total Dale played 146 games and featured on 52 occasions as a non playing substitute over a period of 11 seasons.
