Wallsend Boys Club is one of the region’s greatest football institutions giving a great grounding in life and football for hundreds of young people across Tyneside.

It is often celebrated for the fantastic careers it helped launch but there are many who have passed through its gates who have simply had the opportunity to play football, be coached correctly and develop a love for the game. I’ve no doubt plenty of you reading this may have benefited from Wallsend and many other clubs like it across our Geordie communities.

That’s why we are delighted to promote Wallsend Boys Club’s Annual fundraising dinner with a very special guest, none other than the very popular and well-respected ex-Newcastle United manager, Comrade Chris Hughton. As we all know Comrade Chris is now successfully plying his trade on the south coast with Brighton and Hove Albion.

The event will take place on Friday 6/Oct/17 at the Gosforth Marriott Hotel, Newcastle Upon Tyne and start at 6pm.

Tables of 10 cost £600 with individual tickets £60 each and are available from Carl Walsh at carl.wallsendboysclub@gmail.com

These events are always great value and for a great cause. The guest is rather special too.
