Aldershot Town’s Sportsman’s Dinner on the 1st November!

Aldershot Town are delighted to welcome former Celtic legend and Soccer Saturday pundit Charlie Nicholas as special guest at the Club’s annual Sportsman’s Dinner on Friday 1st November at Farnborough’s Village Hotel!

The black tie event is one of the Club’s annual fundraisers and a highlight of the local social calendar. From 7pm, guests will enjoy a pre-dinner drinks reception and delicious three-course meal, before joining the free-scoring forward in remembering a fascinating career.

Nicholas joined Arsenal in the summer of 1983. He spent over four years there, and scored both their goals in their League Cup Final win over Liverpool in 1987. Nicholas fell out of favour at Highbury later that year, and moved back to Scotland to join Aberdeen. He won two Cup Finals in his time at Pittodrie, before rejoining Celtic in 1990.

The Soccer Saturday pundit is joined on the bill by hilarious comedian Otiz Cannelloni, who has appeared on various BBC One and BBC Two shows including The Stand Up Show and White Rabbit and was voted most popular act to appear at Ludgershall’s Comedy Club ever.

Cannelloni combines the illusion of magic and the wit of stand up to produce a hybrid comic creation. With a mind more suited to testing crash helmets, his performance fluctuates between sheer genius and downright stupidity. Just when you suspect he doesn’t have a clue, Cannelloni removes all doubt.

When this man is on stage the dressing room empties, as the rest of the comics rush to watch and learn from his mistakes. It’s taken years of practice to make something so simple look so difficult.

The evening will also feature some amazing raffle prizes and an auction. Tickets are £600 + VAT for a table of 10 or £60 + VAT each. These can be booked by calling Aldershot Town FC on 01252 320211 or emailing
