We turned the clocks back on Sunday night as we welcomed home “the Wild Thing – Turbo Tim Cranston.
With his #4 shirt retired in the Arena rafters it was time for Cranny to come home and show his 7 year old son Bowen the place where he entertained us so well and for so long. What a night we had.
Before being introduced onto the ice Cranny met up with some old friends and team-mates, Mike O’Connor, Chris kelland and Ron Shudra.
There was a special hug for equipment manager Andy Akers.
Then into the Steelers dressing room to meet some of the guys.
One of Tim Cranston’s finest moments was recording the main lyrics of the Steelers single “Drop the Bomb” well Cranny is still looking for the royalties from Eliot Kennedy.
Back in the day Tim Cranston was fromt and back page news in Sheffield …… so there was time for a catch up with Star’s sports editor Bob Westerdale.
Time to welcome Tim and Bower onto the ice and what a reception they both received.
Steelers captain Jonathan Phillips was on hand to present both Tim and Bowen with special #4 Cranston shirts which their both immediately put on to great appluase.
“The Cranstons” #4
A huge thank you to Tim Cranston and his family – what a great night we all had.
