New Milton Town Fc were privileged to have a visit from Harry Redknapp on Friday 18th November.
With Pie & Mash supplied by The Bournemouth Pie Company to start the evening, everyone was ready to be enthralled by the local legend.
Recalling some of his most memorable times in football to a sell-out crowd, he had the audience hooked on every word. Tales from his playing days right through to his current roles of punditry, he had so many stories that he hardly took a breath for over an hour of pure entertainment.
Opening everyone’s eyes to what goes on behind the scenes when players are bought and sold
(Who knew Ron Atkinson had never seen Sean Teale play before he signed him!) when players from abroad came and witnessed how the English trained (Razor Ruddock having a cigarette) and many more hilarious tales. When he said he was interested in the New Milton Town Fc Managers role, the current manager looked worried!
Harry was good enough to stay behind afterwards and have some pictures taken, and sign some memorabilia for supporters and the club itself.
New Milton Town Fc have more evenings planned starting with a Comedy night on December 10th, which has Mike Gunn of Michael Macintyre comedy roadshow fame on the bill, and will soon be announcing another ‘An Evening With’ for February 2017
