Sirrel spent a number of years at Meadow Lane but none were more impressive than 1981 when the took the Magpies back to the top flight of football for the first time in 55 years after guiding the club through all four divisions.

The event will be to celebrate Jimmy Sirrel’s 80th birthday, with guest of honour being the current FA’s Director of Football Howard Wilkinson, who worked alongside Sirrel in the late 70’s and early 80’s.
