City’s trophy to visit IW

Tuesday, January 22, 2013 - 10:59

FOOTBALL ISLAND football fans will get the chance to see the Premiership Trophy, and meet a former top player with a fascinating story.
Paul Lake, now an ambassador for Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City, will be on stage at St George’s Park, Newport, with the trophy, on Thursday, February 7.
Former England under-21 international Lake, who was one of the outstanding English soccer talents of the 1980s, saw his career cut short by a series of injuries and he spiralled into depression. He wrote about it in his highly acclaimed biography I’m not Really Here.
The event has been organised by Wight Blues, the Island’s branch of the Official Manchester City Supporters’ Club, but is open to fans of all clubs and even soccer neutrals.
The evening will start at 7pm, with Lake holding a question and answer session from 8pm. Copies of his book will be available for signing and to purchase.
The cost of the evening is £7.50 with profits going to Manchester City charities.
• Admission is available by advance-purchase ticket only and more details are available from [email protected]
