Two footballing legends are heading for Keighley in September.
Manchester United heroes Bryan Robson and Norman Whiteside will be at the Central Hall on Friday, September 5, for An Evening With… put on by Bingley-based MJK Sports promotions.
As well as a host of stories from behind closed doors at Old Trafford, the pair also have a glut of stories of international football with England and Northern Ireland to reveal, as well as how they are coping with life away from the spotlight.
Promoter Mick Speight said: “Hear previously untold stories from Bryan and Norman. Hear what it was like at United before and after Fergie arrived.
“How did Fergie react to the culture at United when he first arrived and what was it like for the players who fell foul of Fergie?”
Former Bradford City boss Robson will also talk about his 90-cap England career, his constant battle with injuries and also his special relationships with Gazza, Sir Bobby Robson and, of course, Fergie.
Robson played more than 700 professional games with West Brom and Middlesbrough as well as Manchester United and England, scoring 142 times.
He also managed Middlesbrough, West Brom, Sheffield United and Thailand, as well as his season in charge at Valley Parade.
And Whiteside will reveal all about his outstanding career at the Red Devils and with Northern Ireland before it was tragically cut short due to injuries.
No doubt both will share some of the secrets of the legendary social occasions he players shared before Fergie arrived.
Whiteside still holds records as the youngest player to take part in a World Cup, to score in a League Cup and FA Cup final, and also the youngest player to score a senior goal for Manchester United.
“Lots of past footballers say that but for injuries Norman would have undoubtedly become a superstar in world football,” said Speight. “Norman’s story is a must for all football fans.”
Belfast-born Whiteside netted 47 times in 206 matches for Manchester United, before adding another nine in 29 for Everton, as well as nine in 38 international appearances for Northern Ireland.
Compere for the evening is the talented Pete Emmett. Guests who went to the recent rugby league legends night will agree that his charming style and interviewing technique sets him apart from other comperes.
“You are guaranteed lots of laughter, especially as we also have the brilliant comedian Mick Monroe to complete the night’s line-up,” added Speight.
