Kevin Keegan at the Solway Hall! - April 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Solway Hall will welcome one of football’s biggest names, in what is set to be an engrossing event on April 18.
Kevin Keegan needs no introduction. As a player in the 1970s and 1980s, he was described as the first superstar English player to attract the modern media spotlight.
At Liverpool, Keegan won three First Division titles, the UEFA Cup twice, the FA Cup and the European Cup. He also gained his first England cap in 1972.
Moving to West German club Hamburger SV in the summer of 1977 he was named European Footballer of the Year in 1978 and 1979 and won the Bundesliga title in 1978–79.
Keegan came back to England and spent time at Southampton before a transfer to Newcastle in the English second division in 1982. He helped Newcastle to promotion in his second season and retired in 1984. He was also capped 63 times for England and scored 21 goals.
He went on to manage Newcastle United, Fulham and Manchester City, winning promotion as champions in his first full season at all three clubs. He also managed the England national team. Kevin will take to the stage and share stories from his long and successful career. The event will be hosted by Ian Milburn with support from comedian Lester Crabtree.
Lester is a firm favourite in the UK and abroad and his television appearances include ‘Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’.
Lester has worked with Kevin many times before: “I’ll do a set for about an hour and then Kevin will take to the stage. Kevin just doesn’t do a talk he does it with a projector screen and goes right through his whole career. It’s a fabulous presentation that he does, probably the best I’ve seen and after his talk people are free to ask questions.”
There are three types of tickets available from Standard right through to VIP. The top package will give you a chance to meet Kevin and have photos taken beforehand.
With such a diverse career, Kevin’s account of his life will be fascinating and for football fans it will be a highlight of the year.
