1970s soccer star coming to Hastings

A GLOBETROTTING former midfield maestro will be regaling the next Hastings United FC sporting dinner with tales of his colourful career.

Duncan McKenzie turned out for Leeds United, Nottingham Forest, Everton and Chelsea during his playing days as well as Belgian giants Anderlecht, plus Tulsa Roughnecks and Chicago Sting in the USA.

A fans’ favourite remembered fondly as a swaggering 1970s star, McKenzie had the flair and the vision to terrorise even the most fearsome defences.

He is now regarded as one of the best after-dinner speakers on the sports circuit, as entertaining with his anecdotes as he used to be with the ball.

The dinner takes place on Friday, March 18 and a table of eight costs £240.

Call Hastings United FC chairman Dave Walters on 07970 165102 for more information and to book a place.
