Don't miss out!
Ex England and Premier League footballer Lee Sharpe signs for Harworth Colliery FC 
Saturday 20th July 2013
at Harworth & Bircotes Welfare Hall
Harworth Colliery Football Club are delighted to announce that we will be hosting 'AN EVENING WITH LEE SHARPE', the former England, England B and England Under 21 international, at the Harworth and Bircotes Welfare Hall.
However, be aware, this is definitely the England player and not the Chinese Youth International, Yeung Lee Sharpe.
This event that will be compered by our very own 'facebook famous' celebrity Lloyd 'Billy Casper' Wilkinson and will also feature a comedian, who could almost be as funny as Lloyd himself.
Lee will be a face known to many for various different reasons.
Originally he was famous for his football career, when he starred for Torquay United, Leeds United, Bradford City, Sampdoria, Portsmouth, Exeter City, Icealndic side Grindavik, Hoobrook Crown of the Kidderminster Sunday League, Northern Counties East League side Garforth Town, and some other team called Manchester United, that I'm told he also played for.
Apparently there are more Manchester United fans in Harworth and Bircotes than there are in Manchester itself, or even the Red Devils home county of Essex ... so it will probably be a busy night.
Sharpe is also well known for his TV appearances on a variety of shows, such as Celebrity Wrestling, where he appeared as 'Sharpe Shooter', Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Love Island, where he wooed the ladies, especially Jayne Middlemiss.
It is also said that he's dated Abi Titmuss, but hey! I've seen the videos and who hasn't!?
Sharpe will also be a recognised face for his work as a pundit and television presenter.
And of course, Lee Sharpe is highly regarded for his charity work in Africa with the Ambassadors for Sport project.
With so many strings to his bow, the experience he has gained, has given him a great story to tell.
And whilst much of the speech is obviously football related, he is a natural speaker and that ensures the evening will be entertaining to all.
He is one of those personalities who is respected and appreciated by men and women alike,with both sporting and non sporting interests alike.
The night will also include a football quiz, raffle, and sporting auction.
The cost of the evening is £20 and that includes pie & peas and a pint, an absolute steal for what should be a great night.
Please contact Harworth Colliery chairman and Alan Carr impersonator, Jonny Wilson, on 07979958255 for your tickets, or contact him through the AN EVENING WITH LEE SHARPE - HCFC FUND RAISER facebook group which as been set up in conjunction with the event.
There is already a big demand locally for tickets for this event, so contact Jonny ASAP if you don't want to miss out.
Oh yeah, I nearly forgot to say, when I used the title 'Ex England footballer Lee Sharpe signs for Harworth Colliery FC', I meant he'd be signing autographs and posing for photos at the end of the night and stuff like that.
But you knew that anyway, because you're not really daft enough to have fallen for an attention seeking headline like that in the first place.
