WORLD CUP winner Ray Wilson is to lead another England bid for victory – all in aid of Gerry Murphy’s testimonial.
Huddersfield’s 1966 hero, below, will take part in an International Quiz Night at the Galpharm on Thursday week, November 1.
Joining him in the England team are two more of the town’s favourites – Andy Booth and Jon Stead – and they will be doing battle against star-studded line-ups from Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
Much-capped trio Joey Jones, Terry Yorath and Brian Flynn are representing Wales, it’s Frank Stapleton, Don Givens and Paddy Kenny for Ireland and, for Scotland, Eddie Gray, Lou Macari and Les Massie.
“It should be an excellent night for football fans of all ages,” said George Binns, of the testimonial committee.
“The stars taking part are not just big names in football – all keen to support Gerry in his testimonial year – but they are all tremendous characters as well and we anticipate it will be a really entertaining and enjoyable night.
“In addition to the main event, there will be an audience participation quiz as we go along, too, with prizes for the winners, and there will also be an auction giving people the chance to bid for some excellent memorabilia.”
It’s 7.00 for 7.30 and the event is being sponsored by GW Body Shop Ltd.
Tickets, priced £20 and including a pie and peas supper, are available from Linda Myers at the Galpharm Stadium on 01484 484152 or Mr Binns on 01484 428530.
