Paul Merson is guest speaker at club's anniversary bash
A FORMER international footballer turned television pundit will be the guest of honour when a village team marks a major milestone in its history.
Eckington Football Club was founded in 2003 and now, 10 years on, it is looking to celebrate its anniversary in fitting fashion by holding a dinner with guest speaker Paul Merson.
The former Arsenal and Aston Villa midfielder, capped 21 times by England, will be the star turn at the event being held at The Bell, Eckington, on Friday, October 11.
Doors open at 6.30pm with the meal served at 7pm. After the food has been consumed, Paul Merson will give an after dinner speech touching on various stories he picked up during his time in the game as a highly-talented player and more recently as a regular on Sky Sports programme Soccer Saturday.
The evening will also include an auction in aid of club funds and the Midlands Air Ambulance.
Tickets are priced at £45 and are available from The Bell at Eckington on 01386 750033.
