SIGNED ‘THAT GOAL’ PRINTS RAISED £600 FOR THE VARIETY CLUB CHILDREN’S CHARITY DURING THE ‘HEROES OF ‘99 CHARITY EVENING AT THE CITY OF MANCHESTER STADIUM!
For the first time since that epic season of 1998/99, Joe Royle, Paul Dickov, Nicky Weaver and the rest of the team were re-united at a spectacular dinner to celebrate the wonderful achievements that secured promotion from the old 2nd Division to the 1st Division the following year.
The evening consisted of a three-course meal and the opportunity to purchase unique memorabilia at an action-packed evening re-living this exciting and vital period in Manchester Cityʼs history.
Special VIP guests including Mark Halsey (the referee) and Brian Horton (Ex MCFC Manager/Sky TV pundit) to name but a few. The players re-lived their stories of that famous day with life-long blues, comedian Eddie Large and TV presenter John Stapleton adding to the occassion.
Ian Cheeseman of BBC Radio Manchester and a lifelong Manchester City supporter was the compere and auctioneer on the night. ‘That Goal’ prints signed by all the players fetched a staggering £600 for the Variety Club Children’s Charity which helps disabled and disadvantaged children throughout the UK.
