Sporting Dinner With Liverpool Legends - Saturday 1 January 2000

Shrivenham Football Club is delighted to announce that our next Sporting Dinner will see not one, but TWO ex-Liverpool legends providing the entertainment!

Our next Legends Sporting Dinner is booked for Thursday January 31 [2019] and we’ve another special night for all you Liverpool fans out there when we’ll be joined by none other than Reds legends John Barnes and Jan Mølby!

Both players have a huge popular reputation among the Liverpool faithful, so tickets are sure to sell out as they did when we brought you Bruce Grobbelaar!

Barnes joined Watford at the age of 17 (in 1981) and made 296 appearances for the club in the following six years, scoring 85 goals and made his England debut in 1983.  Four years later he joined Liverpool for £900k where between 1987 and 1997, won the First Division and the FA Cup twice and scored 106 goals in 403 matches for the Reds.

By the time of his last appearance for England (in 1995) he had been capped 79 times and he also transferred to Newcastle United before ending his playing career at Charlton Athletic in 1999.

He moved to Scotland to become head coach of Celtic in the same year with former Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish as Director of Football and also managed the Jamaica national team in 2008–09 and the English club Tranmere Rovers in 2009.

During his playing career he was named the PFA Players' Player of the Year twice and the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year once.

Central Midfielder Mølby meanwhile, began his playing career with Kolding IF (1981-1982) before moving to Ajax (1982-1984) and arrived at Anfield in a spell that lasted from 1984 through to 1996 and which saw him pick up Football League First Division winners medals on three occasions along with runners-up medals four times.  He also helped the club win the FA Cup three times and were runners-up twice.

That’s not all!  His Liverpool career also saw him win the Football League Cup (in 1995) and the FA Charity Shield no fewer than four times – so one unforgettable playing career!

He also featured for Barnsley and Norwich City on loan during 1995 and Swansea City (1996-1998) where he also stepped up to the management game.

Having left Swansea in ’98, he also had managerial spells with Kidderminster Harriers (1999-2002) winning the Conference title in 1999-00 and then Hull City (2002), before returning to the Harriers for the 2003-04 season.

The evening gets underway at 7:15pm and as always, we’ll have the fantastic Phil King hosting the event and there’s comedy from the hilarious bob Webb too!

Tickets are priced at just £30 and includes a fish and chips supper so don’t delay!
