Legendary broadcaster, Ray French MBE, will be the guest speaker at the 2014 Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust dinner on Friday 14th November.
A former dual-code international, French is well known as the voice of rugby league on the BBC for over three decades, commentating on every Challenge Cup final between 1982 and 2008, with his distinctive voice still a part of the coverage on BBC Radio Merseyside.
French will regale the audience with anecdotes from over 50 years in the game as player and member of the media on an evening to celebrate the fantastic work carried out in the community by the Trust throughout 2014.
The evening will also see the launch of the club’s heritage numbers, a definitive list of every player to play for the Wakefield Trinity compiled by club historian, Lee Robinson, from first ever player, Harry Kershaw, to Max Jowitt, the 1,346th and most recent man to represent the club.
Past and present players will be in attendance for the night which will include a three-course meal and sports memorabilia auction to raise money for the Trust to enable them to continue with the invaluable work within the Wakefield district.
Tickets are available at £40 per head or £350 for a table of ten and can be booked by contacting email@example.com
