WE are pleased to announce that our next guest speaker in McMenemy's will be former England and Blackburn Rovers striker Chris Sutton.
The former England International started his career at Norwich City, scoring 43 goals in 127 games before becoming the first £5million transfer between two English clubs by moving to Blackburn Rovers in 1994. In his first season with Rovers he formed a formidable partnership with Alan Shearer known as the “SAS” which helped to fire the Lancashire club to the Premiership title.
Sutton left Blackburn for Chelsea in July 1999 for £10million. He scored just once for the Stamford Bridge side before moving north of the border to join Martin O’Neill at Celtic in July 2000 for £6million, a Scottish record and a sum that O’Neill described as a snip.
Since hanging up his boots, he has also had a spell as manager of Lincoln City. He has also released an autobiography titled "Paradise and Beyond". Now a regular in the media with punditry work, Sutton has many has plenty of stories to tell from his time in football.
The event in McMenemy's will take place on Friday 4th November. Tickets are £45 per person and includes a 3–course meal. To book, please call Dave or Sam on 01472 605050.
