Chesham United are delighted to be welcoming Big Ron Atkinson to the newly refurbished The Chess Suite on the evening of Thursday 20th April 2017.
Without a doubt these are excellent evenings, whoever the speaker is, so when we get an absolute legend like Big Ron, it is simply not to be missed!
Ron Atkinson is an English footballing legend. Not short of an opinion, ‘Big Ron’ mixes the funny side of football with advice from a career that saw him play over 500 games for Oxford United before starting his managerial career at Kettering Town. From there he went on to manage WBA, Manchester United, Atlético Madrid, Sheffield Wednesday, Aston Villa, Coventry City and Nottingham Forest. As a TV pundit Big Ron became renowned for developing his own language that became known as ‘Ronglish’ – A witty and humorous night is guaranteed in the newly refurbished clubhouse at Chesham United FC.
Although these events are fundraisers for the club, there is an element of risk as, bluntly, to get great names like Ron Atkinson, does involve a financial commitment, so we are really looking for bums on seats, and once we have that, the evening looks after itself. A big thank you to those that help out behind the scenes – It can’t happen without you!
Compering and entertaining throughout the evening will be the amazing comedian Jed Stone – Jed was our host for the Graham Gooch dinner a few years back and did a cracking job, he could not be more helpful to us as organisers (our PA was broken and, like magic, he pulled one out of the boot of his car!), and was absolutely hilarious on the night.
To book your place call the club on 01494 783964 or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are £55, or you can book a table of 10 for a discounted £500.
Guess what? We have already sold three tables and the event was only booked today!
