On Friday 12th May 2023 we will play host to an evening with one of Football’s most famous and much loved characters Paul Merson.
Following Paul's 2011 BBC Documentary, he will speak openly about his battles with addiction and depression throughout his hugely successful career both on and off the pitch with host for the evening, Middlesbrough Football Club legend and former Hartlepool United Manager, Craig Hignett.
Paul made 425 appearances for the Gunners in a career that spanned 12 years scoring 99 goals. Nicknamed ‘The Magic Man’, Paul went on to play for Middlesbrough, Aston Villa, Portsmouth and Walsall. Paul is now better known for his work on SKY TV as a presenter of the Fantasy Football show and a regular on Saturday afternoons as part of SKY Sports Soccer Saturday football coverage, where he brings his own style of punditry to the screen.
There will be an auction and raffle with some great prizes up for grabs. There will also be a chance to ask Paul and Craig questions and to purchase some fantastic memorabilia on the night.
