David Seaman MBE, Ray Parlour, Perry Groves
Fairfield Halls, Croydon - 26/1/21
Amassing practically 900 appearances in the red and white of The Gunners between them, three Arsenal legends are coming to town to talk about their action-packed football careers. . .
Legendary midfielder Ray Parlour – affectionately dubbed “The Romford Pele” by Arsenal supporters; fellow double-winner, goalkeeper David Seaman; and fans favourite Perry Groves - now a radio presenter will discuss the games, dressing room/training ground stories, managers, fall outs and everything you wanted to know about playing for a successful football club.
There will be a chance to pose questions to the stars during the evening.
VIP tickets are also available. These afford the opportunity for a meet and greet with the stars and a photo opportunity before the show. Due to limited availability, ticket purchasers should check this out at the box office when booking.
Ray Joined as a trainee and spent 14 years with Arsenal.
He won a Cup Winners’ Cup runner-up medal in 1995 and blossomed following the arrival of Arsene Wenger the following year, being part of The Double-winning teams of the ’97 to ’98 and ’01 to ’02 seasons. In the 2002 FA Cup Final he famously scored a 30-yard screamer against Chelsea. His trophy tally with Arsenal includes three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, one League Cup and one European Cup Winners’ Cup.
339 appearances, 32 goals
DAVID SEAMAN MBE
The 6ft 4ins Yorkshireman joined the Gunners at the start of the ’90-’91 season when manager George Graham paid £1.3m – then a record fee for a keeper – for his services.
David conceded only 18 goals when playing in every match of the 38-game season as Arsenal regained the league title.
During his time as a Gooner, David won three league championships (1991, 1998, 2002), four FA Cups (1993, 1998, 2002, 2003), the League Cup in 1993 and, in 1994, the European Cup Winners Cup.
He made his England debut in 1988 and appeared for the side in fifteen consecutive years, a national record, earning a total of 75 caps.
155 appearances, 21 goals
Perry joined Arsenal in September 1986, becoming the first acquisition by new manager George Graham. In his first season at the club he helped set up Charlie Nicholas for the winner in the 1987 League Cup final, dribbling past three Liverpool players before laying off the ball.
Noted for his enthusiasm and hard work, he started most of Arsenal's games in the 1987–88 season partnering Alan Smith. He made 21 appearances in Arsenal's title-winning 1988–89 season.
