6 members of Phil Lewis’s back room staff were invited to be special guests at last night’s Anderlecht v Mechelen League game st Lotto park in Brussels.
The 6 were Mark Dickson, Alan Perry, Syd Thompson, Gareth Maguire, Michelle Crawford and Jordan Milne.
Anderlecht featured their player manager Vincent Kompany and Samir Nasri but could only draw 0-0.
Wearing their Linfield colours, the 6 were well received in what they said was a fantastic Lotto park stadium which generated a great atmosphere.
Interestingly, for the first time Anderlecht ladies are getting to play home games in their main Lotto park stadium in this Uefa Champions League group 8 tournament and so having defeated PAOK of Greece 5-0 there on Wednesday, they will play Lillestrom of Norway there today while Linfield will play PAOK elsewhere.
And of course it means that on Tuesday, Linfield will have the honour of playing Anderlecht in the impressive Lotto park stadium to conclude the group before returning to Belfast to prepare for next Saturday’s Irish cup semi final against Crusaders in Bangor.
