Tickets still available for special event at the SoL.
A special dinner is being held at the Stadium of Light this Friday (November 1) to celebrate Jimmy Montgomery’s 70th birthday.
A gala dinner and ‘This Is Your Life’-style extravaganza is taking place in honour of the 1973 FA Cup-winning hero, who is the club’s all-time record appearance maker.
Montgomery played 627 games for the club after making his debut against Walsall in 1961 – a record which is unlikely to be beaten.
The black tie dinner will include a host of tributes to Jimmy as well as a charity auction. A number of special guests will also be in attendance.
All proceeds from the event will go to support the club’s partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
Tickets are priced at £75 and include a three-course dinner with coffee, a pre-event reception in Quinn’s Bar and a commemorative programme.
