Controversial football personality Neil Warnock is relishing the prospect of returning to the club where his long career began as he prepares to attend a sporting dinner at Chesterfield.Warnock scored two goals in 24 appearances for Chesterfield after starting out as a winger with the Spireites in 1967. He went on to play for seven other clubs, including Rotherham United and Barnsley.
Warnock then enjoyed a colourful career in management with a host of clubs including Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, QPR and Leeds United, often clashing with officials, together with opposition managers and players.
Looking ahead to his appearance in an All-Star Events dinner at the Proact Stadium on Thursday, October 1, Warnock said: "I am really looking forward to going back to Chesterfield. When I was asked if I would talk at a dinner, I jumped at the chance because I have fond memories of Chesterfield and I know chairman Dave Allen and chief executive Chris Turner there.
"I will talk about the run-ins I had with various high-profile figures over the years and there will also be an opportunity for those attending to ask me questions. It promises to be a great night."
The events, which starts at 7pm for 7.30pm and includes a superb three-course meal, also features further entertainment from hilarious comedian Max Pressure. Tickets, priced at just £39, can be booked by phoning 01246 269300 (ext 4153) or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
