In Business: Academy showcase evening a hit

Scores of local businesses enjoyed an evening of hospitality at the Academy of Light at the latest SAFC In Business event.

A drinks reception in the Black Cats’ training headquarters was followed up by a showcase game from some of the budding academy stars.

Executive director Charlie Methven welcomed everybody and gave a business update, before a special presentation from academy manager Paul Reid.  

Guests were then given a peek behind the scenes with a tour of the facilities and finished up with a meal in the players’ refectory, served by our Netflix star chefs Patrick and Joyce.
