Kevin Keegan will once again take to the stage of the Hedworth Hall in the first sportsman dinner to be held at the venue in almost four years.

The night will feature a chat by the main man himself, before the floor will be opened up to guests to quiz the man they hailed as King during his reign at Newcastle United.

Keegan managed Newcastle from 1992 to 1997 where he helped them win promotion as First Division champions. He returned in January 2008 under Mike Ashley, but resigned eight-months later.

Owner of the Hedworth Hall Tony Singh said: “This will be the first sportsman dinner talk we have held at The Hedworth Hall in over four years, so the fact we have King Kev as our first speaker is fantastic.

“We are delighted to be able to welcome him back. He has been to the Hedworth Hall a few times, the last time alongside former Sunderland manager Peter Reid. We do expect this night to be a sell-out.”
