An Evening With Paul Merson

Thursday 9th September




Paul Merson

Join us on Thursday 9th September at Plumpton for An Evening With Paul Merson.

Known more recently for his exploits on Sky Sports as a pundit, particularly on Soccer Saturday where his sharp wit and eye for the game is shown to such great effect alongside his friends and fellow pundits we can often forget just what a glittering career he had.

Playing 599 league games and scoring 127 goals, he was best known for his superb stint at Arsenal where he played 327 league games and scored 78 goals. Whilst there he was part of some brilliant teams that won the First Division twice (now the Premier League), FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners Cup.

He then moved to Middlesbrough (48 games, 12 goals) for one season before returning to the Premiership with Aston Villa where he played another 100 games and scored 18 goals, also reaching the FA Cup Final in 2000, unfortunately losing against Chelsea. Aged 34, he dropped down to play for Portsmouth in the Championship and was instrumental in their promotion to the Premiership that season.

He was voted PFA Young Player of the Year in 1990, played for England 21 times and scored 3 goals and won the Premiership Player of the Month in February 2000.

It has also been well documented that despite the glittering career, Paul has had some troubles with both alcoholism and drug addiction as well as gambling which the night will also touch upon.

 

Whether you are a football fan, a sports fan or just interested in a good night out, An Evening With Paul Merson should be one for you. There will be a two course meal included in the ticket price followed by Paul talking through his life story and career concluded by a short Q & A with the great man.
