Celebrate 25 years of Marple Athletic at our Gala Dinner

I'm involved in organising a 25th anniversary dinner for Marple Athletic Junior Football Club.

The basic idea is it's a reunion dinner for players and managers from over the last quarter century in November.
The evening will be a chance for players to get together from over the years, as well as managers and coaches and anyone who has been involved in the club since Alan Rainford and Geoff Ryan started it all in 1985.
One of the players from the first ever line up is Tim Ryan, now the player-assistant manager at Stalybridge Celtic, who has enjoyed a career in professional football.

The guest speaker will be Fred Eyre, local football legend, BBC Manchester broadcaster, manager of many clubs in Greater Manchester grass roots football.

We've also got Justin Moorhouse, star of Phoenix Nights, Key 103 radio and a top stand up comedy performer.

The dinner will be held on Friday the 12th of November 2010 at Stockport County Football Club. Tickets are priced at £35, with discounts for a table of 10.  There will also be a memorabilia auction, a DJ for dancing and hopefully a few other special guests.

You can download a form on the club website.
