3:00pm Wednesday 3rd October 2012 in What's On
PONTARDAWE Town AFC have announced an evening with Barry Fry which takes place at the clubhouse in Pontardawe on Saturday, October 13, at 7pm.
Pontardawe Town are looking to raise much-needed funds to develop a new stadium in Pontardawe in conjunction with Neath and Port Talbot borough council and Celtic Community Leisure.
They play in Welsh League Division One and run three senior teams, two youth teams, academy, ladies and many junior and mini teams. The new ground facilities are primarily needed to maintain their standing as a leading Welsh League side, but also to provide a venue the whole community of the Swansea Valley can be proud of.
Barry Fry was born on April 7, 1945. He is a formerManchester United apprentice playing as a winger (his playing career also involved brief spells with Bolton, Luton and Leyton Orient), but he retired prematurely due to injury. Since then he managed Maidstone United, Southend United, Barnet, Birmingham and Peterborough, where he is chairman.
Barry is a massive character from the game and the club are looking forward to some fascinating and funny stories that he will have to share.
This evening is open to everyone who wants to see one of football’s biggest characters.
Tickets available now at £35 (includes three-course dinner and comedian Dickey Hart).
