Manchester Magician at the City Football Ground – The Summer of 69
In 1969 Manchester City beat Leicester in the FA Cup final. The result was one goal to nil.
Forty years on a benefit dinner was held in honor of the team that played last year and I was invited to perform close up magic at the event. Most of the players are still alive and well and attended the function which was held at the Stadium of Light in the heart of Manchester.
Above is a photograph of me with the team of 1969.
The evening was packed with entertainment as well as an auction and speeches from players and managers.
I also witnessed one of the best after dinner speakers I have seen. Steve Daley, spoke of his life in football and had complete control over a boisterous room for forty minutes. The event was hosted by W.K.D Promotions and the MC was an excellent Michael (Braddy) Bradshaw.
