Bryan Robson Winton Wanderers

Local Eccles football club Winton Wanderers will turn 25 in April and is celebrating by hosting a dinner, auction and meet and greet with Bryan Robson at the Worsley Marriott Hotel.

The evening, hosted by Premier Sports, will take place on Friday 3rd April.

The Wanderers are made up of multiple teams and age groups, from under 6’s all the way to under 18’s.

Patrick Pollock, a member of the committee for Winton said: “The event is purely to celebrate the club and what it has done over this last 25 years. We managed to get Bryan Robson in as we have connections to his agent, so that’ll be great to have him there.”

Though the money raised from the event will somewhat go to the club’s infrastructure, the majority of it will be used purely for funding the event.

Pollock added: “We just wanted to use the funds to celebrate the club, considering the venue and the three course meals and so on, a lot of it will just be used for that.”

The club have also had men’s teams in the past, as recently as this season, but they have collapsed due to lack of willing participants.

Mr Pollock continued: “Yeah we have tried to have adult teams involved but they just kept folding, what with people not turning up. We have aspirations to set them up again in the future though, once an opportunity arises.”

Tickets for the event start at £55 and include a 3 course meal and a Q&A with Bryan Robson.
