Rare appearance from goalscoring great...BANKS’S Stadium will play host to a rare Sporting Dinner featuring the legend that is Jimmy Greaves on Thursday, December 4th.
The World Cup-winner and goalscorer supreme is a replacement for Howard Webb whose new role as Technical Director of the Official Referee’s Association prevents him from taking part in such events.
It’s certainly an inspired substitution. Greaves is one of the greats of English football; he is England’s third-highest International goalscorer with 44 goals to his name and the top scorer in the history of English top-flight football with a fantastic 357 strikes. Oh, and he has scored more hat-tricks for England (six) than anyone else.
A colourful character, with plenty of stories to tell from a long career in the game both on and off-the-pitch, it promises to be a great night!
Tickets are on sale now at £37.50, to also include a delicious four-course meal. You can book your place at the Banks’s Stadium Ticket Office or by calling 01922-651 414/416.
See m6j9.com for a full list of forthcoming events here at Walsall FC... it's certainly a packed programme for the months ahead!
