Great opportunity for a Sunday morning team to gather a few lads together and take a table at this event.
Friday night, which means you won't be hanging on the Sunday morning when you have a game.Former Arsenal and Middlesbrough midfielder Ray Parlour is set to star at a fundraising event in Newton Aycliffe.
Dubbed "the Romford Pele" by Gunners team-mate Marc Overmars, the ex-England playmaker will appear at Aycliffe Workingmen’s Club on Friday 14 September, for a fun-packed evening organised by the town's football club.
Entertainment on the night, which is being hosted by Sky Sports News reporter David Craig, will also include hilarious Scouse comedian Gary Skyner, plus the usual Sportsman’s Evening fun and games.
Aycliffe FC general manager Dan Lewis, one of the organisers, said: "We’ve been looking for a high-profile speaker for our first big event and Ray fits the bill.
"Ray was a big player in the early 90s London football culture so tells lots of funny stories about his Arsenal team-mates, as well as other footballers.
"He also remains fairly high-profile due to his role on Sky Sports, so we’re hoping he’ll appeal to both the young and old.
"Gary Skyner is one of the best club comedians on the circuit, so it really does promise to be a cracking evening."
