Having followed up one of the most distinguished playing careers of the era with an unforgettable time in management, there were no shortage of tales for Keegan to tell about his time within the game.

Compered by comedian Jed Stone, the evening featured a two-course meal and sponsored by Pennine Industrial Equipment, Magic Rock Brewing, Majestic Site Management.

Kevin discussed his career in great detail - from his beginnings as a child in Doncaster, his first ever game for Scunthorpe United’s youth team against Huddersfield at Heckmondwike, and his progression to Liverpool, where he won some of the top domestic and European honours.

Kevin also reminisced on his time in club management with Newcastle, Fulham and Manchester City, before opening up about his time as Manager of England's national side.

The evening ended with a Question and Answer session hosted by comedian and compere Jed Stone. Questions from the audience included Paul Gascoigne, perms, and life as a football manager. Kevin then posed for photographs and individually met the 260+ guests in the packed out suite at the Stadium.

Commercial Director Ian Birtley commented:

“It was great to see so many of our fans meeting one of the legends of the game, and I’d like to personally thank Pennine Industrial Equipment, Magic Rock Brewing and Majestic Site Management for their support for the event.

"Kevin’s popularity was clear on the night and his stories of his experiences in the game were great to hear.

"We are looking forward to running another event later in 2022, so if you’d like to be involved, or want more information, please get in touch with the Hospitality team.”
