Fairclough heading for Sportsman's Dinner

Super Sub Fairclough set for Saxonville

Super sub David Fairclough will be Whitby Town’s guest speaker at this season’s Sportsman’s Dinner.

The dinner will be held at the Saxonville Hotel on Wednesday, February 7, and will feature the former Liverpool striker as guest speaker.

Fairclough is best known for an eight year spell with Liverpool between 1975 and 1983, where he forged a reputation as a super sub for his prolific goalscoring record from the bench.

He made 153 appearances for the reds in those eight years, scoring 55 goals. He went on to appear for a number of other clubs around the world, including Toronto Blizzard, Norwich City and Oldham Athletic, amongst others.

Tickets for the dinner cost £35, and will also include a three-course meal and a comedian. You can book your place and find out more details through chairman Graham Manser on 07966 241 344.
