About Stuart Pearce MBE:

Stuart Pearce is one of England’s best-known and most-loved football icons.

An electrician by trade, Stuart started his playing career at non-league Wealdstone. He signed for Coventry at the age of 21 and quickly established himself as a tough but fair left back with a lethal left foot.

After 2 years at Coventry, he moved to Nottingham Forest under the leadership of Brian Clough where he spent 12 years, most of that time as Club Captain.

Affectionately known as ‘Psycho’ by his legions of fans, his loyalty, commitment, and dedication to Forest have ensured he will always be a legend at the City Ground.

Spells at Newcastle and West Ham followed. During his time at Newcastle, the team reached 2 FA Cup Finals and competed in the Champions League.

When Harry Redknapp came calling, Stuart made the move south and enjoyed a successful 2-year stint winning Hammers player of the year in his second season.

He finished his playing career with a year at Manchester City helping them to win the Championship and promotion into the Premier League. Stuart finally hung up his boots at the age of 40.

About Francis Benali MBE:

Ask anyone involved with Southampton Football Club about Francis Benali and they’ll describe a loyal club legend. The former professional footballer and coach spent the majority of his 20 years playing career with the club.

After 389 games with Southampton Francis, or Franny as he’s more affectionately known, is still a fans’ favorite today, thanks to his commitment to the club, hardworking attitude, and ferocious, full-blooded tackles.

Many fans will remember Franny playing through injuries to help the team, including famously playing on with a broken arm!

Francis appears regularly on Sky Sports and BT Sport, providing well-informed opinions based on years of experience within football.

He offers a player’s perspective on key topics, providing punditry and commentary on some of the biggest teams and matches, as well of course when his own team Southampton is featured.

We are certainly looking forward to this event and welcoming the Red Funnel team to an evening with Stuart Pearce on November 6th, 2022
