FOOTBALL legend Bryan Robson is preparing for a match in South Tyneside.
The former England and Manchester United captain is starring in an ‘evening with’ event at the Hedworth Hall, in Dean Road, South Shields.
The event, on March 28, has been organised in association with Harton and Westoe Football Club.
The visit follows a number of appearances by sporting legends at the venue.
Gavin Yannetta, manager of the Hedworth Hall, said: “We held a number of sporting events last year, and all proved to be popular.
“We are sure this one will be no exception.
“It’s just great we are able to bring some of the sporting world’s well-known names to South Tyneside.”
The night will be hosted by former Newcastle United striker Joe Allon, with entertainment from South Shields comedian Aaron Charlton.
Chester-le-Street-born Robson began his career with West Bromich Albion in 1972 before moving to Manchester United, where he became the longest-serving captain in the club’s history.
He went on to become manager of Middlesbrough – guiding them to two promotions to the Premier League and to the first three cup finals in the club’s history.
During the night, Robson, who represented England on 90 occasions between 1980 and 1991 – making him the sixth most-capped player, will hold a question and answer session.
Tickets, priced £35, including a curry and rice supper, are available by contacting Hedworth Hall on 456 3112.
