Sportsman’s Dinner

Sportsman Dinner - Date: Friday 14th November

Aldershot Town host a Sportsman’s Dinner with Britain’s leading after-dinner speaker on Friday 14 November at Farnborough’s 4-star Village Urban Resort Hotel.

Bob ‘The Cat’ Bevan MBE is joined by former Arsenal and England midfielder, Ray Parlour, on a night of hilarious stand-up comedy and brilliant stories from two illustrious careers to follow a delicious three-course meal.

Bevan, former host of BBC 5Live’s 6-0-6 phone-in and star of Channel 4’s Countdown and Terry Wogan’s Auntie’s Bloomers, is a world-renowned comedian, raconteur and failed goalkeeper who was the resident speaker on the 2013-14 Ashes cricket tour. Author of the best-selling book Nearly Famous, his celebrated interviews, many broadcast on Sky TV, have included subjects from Sir Alex Ferguson to former Prime Minister John Major.

Parlour – nicknamed ‘The Romford Pele’ by Marc Overmars – made 466 appearances in a superb 18-year career with Arsenal, during which time he won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, one League Cup and one European Cup Winners’ Cup, and was a member of the Gunner’s 2003-04 Invincibles team.. He also won 10 England caps and played for a colourful list of managers, including George Graham, Arsene Wenger, Steve McLaren, Phil Brown, Glenn Hoddle and Kevin Keegan.

With reception drinks from 6.30pm, and also featuring an auction and raffle, it will be a great night full of good food and hilarious insights that is perfect for friends, family, colleagues and clients.
