BRUCE Grobbelaar, the legendary former Liverpool goalkeeper, is making a rare visit to Wolverhampton next Thursday (7pm).
Grobbelaar, who made over 400 appearances in a glittering era for the Reds, will be talking about his career and giving his hilarious stand-up routine live on stage at the Cleveland Arms Sports Pub on Stow Heath Lane.
The Zimbabwe international won six league titles on Merseyside, three FA Cups and the European Cup in 1984.
But his career could have taken a different path as he agreed to join Albion under Ron Atkinson before joining Liverpool – but the move was scuppered due to a work permit issue.
He is currently back in the UK for a quick visit as he now lives in the USA where he has been coaching Ottawa Fury - and will chat with fans and sign autographs and have pictures taken.
Will Adamson, event promoter, said: “Everyone knows how charismatic Bruce is and it’s a massive honour for us to bring him to Wolverhampton.
“He has some great stories to tell and I’m sure the fans are in for a treat. He’s more than happy to mix with the audience for pictures and autographs.
“His list of honours as a player is very, very impressive. The Liverpool teams he played in were the best of their generation.”
Over 150 tickets have been snapped up which leaves a few remaining – fans are urged to call the Cleveland Arms on 01902 451021 or call in to secure their place before Thursday.
Sports Talk Events are bringing a series of special nights to the Cleveland Arms Sports Bar in Wolverhampton that will encompass the stars of darts, motocross, speedway and football. William Adamson and Nigel Pearson went through what's coming up.
