An Evening with Tony Currie – Thursday 19th February

Thursday 19th February will see the Old Crown Inn on London Road host “An Evening with Tony Currie” in aid of a charity with a difference…

Match Day Support – based in Sheffield – gives young people, who wouldn’t normally have the chance,  an opportunity to be involved in football. The charity work with many professional Clubs, including both Sheffield sides, Bradford City and the Nottingham rivals to name but a few.

Whether it is the cost of watching a game or other issues that may prevent watching or playing, whether that be short and long term illnesses, bereaved and disadvantaged children, the charity help individuals from a range of backgrounds do things that many of us take for granted.

Match Day Support will next season become the principle partner of local junior Sunday League team Beighton Falcons – raising money to further their successful “Free Football for All” campaign that has revolutionised the grass roots game and given kids the chance to play football without the prohibitive cost of subs. This will make the Falcons the first ever charity governed Junior Football and Sporting Club in the country.

The doors open at 7.00pm and you can have your picture taken with the man officially voted as Sheffield United’s greatest ever player, along with the FA Cup, for a donation to Match Day Support.

Tony Currie will take the stage at approximately 7.45pm for a fantastic Q and A session led by some rare footage of the great man in action on the big screen.

There are some superb raffle and auction prizes to support a great cause, a few other familiar faces past and present around and a complimentary greasy chip buttie on arrival. The Old Crown also has some top beers, so the perfect recipe for a great night, and all for just £10.

There are literally a few tickets left and you can pay on the night – if you want to get your hands on a ticket in advance you can call in at the Crown and get one over the bar.

Don’t miss this cracking night, in the pub where the Official SUFC Supporters Club was founded in 1928, with the one and only TC!

Don’t worry if you are an exiled Blade, or are unable able to attend for other reasons, as ever, we’ll be covering the event live for you via our Twitter feed –
