McAteer dinner a hit with guests

by Kate Smith

Sporting Dinner a great success.

The Stadium of Light played host to another fantastic event last night as hundreds of fans attended the club's latest Sporting Dinner.

A host of former SAFC stars joined guests in the Banqueting Suite to enjoy a sumptuous four-course meal and the very best in after-dinner entertainment.

Ex captain Jason McAteer pleased the crowd with his anecdotes on stage, before chatting with guests and signing autographs. 

Entertainment was also provided by comedian Mike Farrell followed by an auction and prize draw to help raise funds for the football club's official charity, Foundation of Light. 

1973 FA Cup heroes Jimmy Montgomery, Bobby Kerr, Dick Malone and Micky Horswill attended the event, hosted by Sky Sports’ David Craig.
