Making over 500 first team appearances, and netting his fair share of goals from centre back, as a player, Colin had a reputation as a fearless competitor. Named in the PFA Team of the Year the season Blackburn won the league, we are fortunate to be graced with his presence on the Northolme turf. Since retiring from playing, Hendry has managed Blackpool and Clyde, whilst earlier this season appeared in the opposition dugout when the Holy Blues faced Radcliffe in the Pitching In Northern Premier League.
Former Nottingham Forest, Tottenham Hotspur and Hull City centre back Michael Dawson is the second name on the Premier League XI roster for our Premier League Legends Event, to be held at the Northolme on Saturday 3rd June for a 1pm kick off. And with him set to partner Colin Hendry at the heart of the opposition defence, Neil Warnock will need to have a cunning plan to find a way past this central defensive unit.
Beginning his career in the youth team with the Trickie Trees, Dawson racked up well over 450 appearances in the Football League and Premier League. Also capped on four occasions for the Three Lions, Dawson is still only 39 years of age! Now a regular TV pundit on Sky Sports, back in 2016, Dawson helped Hull City bounce back to the Premier League, helping the Tigers to Play-Off victory at Wembley when they beat Sheffield Wednesday. Michael is sure to be a popular man to sponsor, so be sure to get in touch with Dave Horsley without delay, details of which can be found below.
Both Colin Hendry’s and Michael Dawson’s shirts are now available to sponsor, priced at £200 per player. Your sponsorship of a player includes one standard match entry, a signed shirt from the player, a meet and greet with that player, photo opportunity, and a mention in the Matchday Programme. Colin and Michael will be wearing the specially commissioned, yellow Tower House Wealth Management jerseys for the fixture.
To book your sponsorship, or to sponsor any of the players announced so far, please contact Dave Horsley on 07971 022024. Check back tomorrow as we announce the next two players, in what's set to be a fantastic event for the football community.
