As we enter the final few days prior to the dinner on Saturday I now finally have clear visibility of who our guests for the evening will be. As he feared the combination of Sky and family commitments means that Matt Murray won’t be able to attend. Wayne Hennessey our POTY has also fallen by the wayside, for reasons that remain unclear. Another blow is that our mystery guest having agreed to come, has informed me that his wife went and booked a surprise holiday which means he is now in Egypt rather than Staverton.
That said, we still have a good line up and we’ll be sure to have a good night anyway with former players Mike Bailey and Willie Carr along with their wives. Then we have Director John Gough with his wife Helen and Wolves Secretary Richard Skirrow. Last and most certainly not least we have Kevin Foley from the current squad.
