Cliftonville Football Club are pleased to confirm that legendary former captain George McMullan will be the Guest Speaker at our forthcoming Matchday Lunch.
Hosted at Cliftonville Bowling Club ahead of the Danske Bank Premiership fixture with Dungannon Swifts on Saturday, September 9, the occasion – which will get underway at 12.30pm – will comprise a two-course lunch with wine, followed by tea or coffee and will include a complimentary Matchday Magazine and admission to the match.
Guests will also be entertained by tales from McMullan’s glittering career, on which the curtain came down in May of last year after 103 goals in 544 appearances that delivered two Premiership medals, five League Cup crowns and four County Antrim Shield successes.
Three months after scoring the iconic injury-time goal against Linfield that clinched the 2013 Irish League title, he skippered the team in two never-to-be-forgotten Champions League clashes with Celtic and got to grips with the Gibson Cup again in April 2014, pocketing a further three honours – as well as the Charity Shield – before bowing out with a typically ferocious performance in the Reds’ Europa League Play Off victory over Glentoran on May 10, 2016.
Tickets for next month’s Lunch are available for £30, with a £5 discount for Members and Season Ticket holders, and anyone interested in attending is encouraged to make contact with Kevin Crossan as soon as possible.
