England legend Stuart Pearce is coming to Wellingborough

England legend Stuart Pearce MBE, who played for several clubs but is best known for his spell at Nottingham Forest, will be at The Cutting Room pub in Wellingborough on Thursday, February 4.

The evening with Pearce, where he will undoubtedly be asked about his missed penalty in the semi-finals of the 1990 World Cup, will be hosted by former Premier League referee Jeff Winter with the Wealdstone Raider completing the line-up.

Proceeds from the event will go to Niamh’s Next Step, the Wellingborough-based charity set up in memory of Niamh Curry who lost her 18-month fight with childhood cancer neuroblastoma aged just five in May 2012.

Niamh’s dad Chris Curry said: “The evening with Stuart Pearce should be a really good night.

“It’s an England legend coming to Wellingborough and that doesn’t happen very often.”

Joining Pearce will be former Premier League referee Jeff Winter, who spent 25 years overseeing games until he retired at the end of the 2003/04 season after taking charge of the FA Cup Final.

He is now a writer and radio broadcaster as well as making personal appearances at various events.

The Wealdstone Raider, also known as Gordon Hill, will also be attending the fundraiser.

The Wealdstone FC supporter rose to fame after a video of him heckling some opposition fans went viral on social media.

Next month’s fundraiser will include entertainment, food and a professional photo with Stuart Pearce.

Tickets for the fundraiser are £40 for the VIP ticket and £30 for the standard ticket.

Doors open at 7pm.

For tickets visit The Cutting Room or call James on 07515 751333 or Dene on 07766 826792.
