Newry City AFC are delighted to announce an evening with ex-Premiership referee and current Sky Sports analyst Dermot Gallagher, at the Newry City AFC Club Rooms on Saturday, October 1st, with doors opening at 8pm sharp. The evening will be followed by music from Murphy’s Law.
Dermot is the only Irishman ever to take the whistle at the highest level in England, overseeing games in the old Football League from 1990 to 1992, and in the Premier League from 1992 up to 2007, and he is the only Irishman to referee the FA Cup final. He was also on the International FIFA list from 1994 to 2002, and as a representative of the English FA was able to referee the Ireland v Russia friendly at Lansdowne Road in his final year.
Dermot is now a regular contributor to Sky Sports News, and a popular and active public speaker. And with a wealth of experiences and tales after a lifetime in the game, on the night he will recall his clashes with Fergie, Mourinho, Wenger, Rafa Benitez, Roy Keane, and the rest, and will intersperse it with unscheduled forays into the audience for some interaction.
There are a limited number of tickets available for the event, which are priced at £10, in what is sure to be a night not to be missed out on. To get your ticket contact Gary Wilson (07745112320), Laura Hillen (07857077176) or any NCAFC committee member.
