Grosvenor Casino Newcastle played host to football legend, Kevin Keegan, and top sports commentator and columnist, Colin Murray.
Football enthusiasts gathered at the casino to hear Keegan talk about his rise to the top; from his days as one of England’s finest footballers, managing Newcastle United, and later, his tenure as England manager.
Fans were also treated to a three-course sit-down dinner, and Keegan sat with guests taking time to meet everyone individually and answering questions above and beyond the official Q&A which took place later in the evening. The ex-England manager also posed for selfies and was happy to sign memorabilia that guests had brought.
“We are so proud to welcome Kevin Keegan to the Grosvenor Casino Newcastle,” said Wayne Sheekey, general manager of Grosvenor Casino Newcastle, “Kevin is a living legend in Newcastle and across the UK, and we were privileged to have him tell his story here at the casino.”
A lifelong football fanatic, Colin Murray has established himself as one of the most well-known TV and radio pundits in the country, working for Match of the Day, BBC 5 Live, talkSPORT and more. He was keen to hear about the sporting hero’s highlights during his lengthy career and asked Keegan to name his most memorable moments on the night, which included managing Newcastle United, playing for Liverpool and signing Alan Shearer.
Casino Manager said of the event: “The atmosphere was just incredible!”
