The special event is hosted by Chris McHardy, and Gary and Owen will share their knowledge as well as experience of the beautiful game. The talk promises to be an entertaining and insightful night, and it will give fans the chance to meet the footballers.

Michael is a wunderkind at football. Michael played his first senior England match aged 18 years old, and went on to amass 89 caps and scoring 40 goals. Fans will remember him best in the 1998 FIFA World Cup England V Argentina, aka the match where David Beckham got a red card, as Michael scored an impressive goal. Plus, he scored a memorable hat trick against Germany in 2001. 

Over his career, he has played for Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle United, Manchester United, Stoke City, and England. Michael has been awarded the Premier League Golden Boot twice, and was the last English player to win the Ballon d’Or.

A sucker for a good story, if you invite Kohinoor to a gallery, comedy night, new restaurant, hiking trip, cycle ride, pool day or just about any activity, preferably with the promise of wine, she’ll probably say yes – that is if she isn’t busy planning her next adventure.
