Liverpool legend Molby attends Sportsman's Evening

Evo-Stik Premier League club, Rushall Olympic recently hosted another of their popular Sportsman’s Evenings at their Dales Lane ground.

A packed club enjoyed a memorable evening with guest speaker, Jan Molby, a Liverpool and Denmark legend who was highly regarded as a midfield maestro with great vision and power. Signed by Joe Fagan in 1984 for £200,000 from Ajax he enjoyed a fantastic career at Anfield, winning two League Championships, two FA Cups and a double, before sampling management at Swansea and Kidderminster Harriers amongst other notable achievements.

Comedy was provided by Liverpudlian comedian, Tony Roscoe, and also in attendance on the top table were the Midlands’ favourite boxing promoter, Ron Gray and his son and MC for the evening, Steve Gray.

Nick Allen, Vice-Chairman of the Pics was delighted with the success of the event, ‘We enjoyed another tremendous Sportsman’s Evening at Rushall Olympic’.

‘We have had so much positive feedback about the night and it was great to see so many returning faces including our supporters, players and local businesses. Our guests enjoyed great entertainment and a delicious three-course meal and the atmosphere in the club was fantastic.

'Jan Molby was hugely entertaining and delighted the guests with tales about his football career with the great Johan Cruyff at Ajax and his memorable times at Liverpool amongst other fascinating stories about his career in football.’

The Pics will continue to host a programme of Sportsman’s Evenings in the future and will announce further details through their website, the press and social networking platforms and anyone who is interested in any future events or requires any information should contact the club’s Commercial Consultant, Jonathan Martin on 01939 260099 – office, 01939 260995 – fax, 07971 979261 – mobile, mmsportsgroup@aol.com – email for more details.
