MIDDLESBROUGH FORMER PLAYERS ASSOCIATION
SOUNESS SET FOR BORO RETURN
Boro fans have an opportunity to hear tales of the past from one of the club’s all-time legends when Graeme Souness hosts a fundraising dinner at the Riverside Stadium on Friday April 26.
Organised by Middlesbrough Former Players Association, An Evening with Graeme Souness will feature one of the club’s greatest ever players who went on to win the game’s top honours with Liverpool.
Among the numerous former players also attending the dinner will be the midfielder’s former Boro team-mates John Hickton and David Armstrong, while 1960s captain Dicky Rooks will pay his first ever visit to the Riverside.
Making a rare return to Teesside, Souness will take part in a frank question-and-answer session with supporters, while there will also be an auction of unique Boro memorabilia and prize raffle.
“We’re absolutely thrilled that Graeme has agreed to join us for what promises to an unmissable night,” said his former Boro team-mate Jim Platt, secretary of the Former Players Association.
“Graeme was the complete midfielder and the best I played alongside – better even than Bobby Murdoch. He was brilliant, though it took him time to convince us when he first arrived from Spurs.
All profits from the dinner will go towards the Former Players Association, who help ex-Boro stars stay in touch, giving financial aid to those who need it and supporting a range of Teesside charities.
Tickets for the dinner, which takes place the night before Boro’s final Championship home game with Charlton, are priced £350 for a table of 10 or £35 each. A three-course meal is included, while there will also be a pay bar. Dress code is smart casual.
