Two Ipswich Town legends are coming to town to discuss their action-packed football careers. . .
Former club captain and an ever-present during his six seasons with The Tractor Boys, Matt Holland is joined for the evening by Ipswich born and bred Kieron Dyer, who began his glittering career with the club as a 17-year-old.
The pair will discuss the games, dressing room and training ground stories, managers, fall outs and everything you wanted to know about playing for a successful football club.
Compere for the evening is talkSPORT’s hilarious Perry Groves who will ensure there is a chance to pose your questions to the stars on the night.
A limited number of VIP tickets are also available. These afford the opportunity for a meet and greet with the stars and a photo opportunity before the show.
Boasting the distinction of playing 223 consecutive games and only missing one league match, due to international duty, for Ipswich Town, Matt led the team to promotion from the First Division in the year 2000 and drove them on to the club’s highest ever Premier League finish of fifth place the following season, qualifying The Blues for Europe.
Having joined from Bournemouth for a fee of £800,000 in 1997, Matt was given the captain’s armband the following season and was awarded the club’s Player of the Year on two occasions.
His international career, playing for the Republic of Ireland, saw him score five goals in 49 appearances, including a goal for the Irish in the
2002 World Cup finals.
Amassing nearly 100 appearances with The Blues before moving for a then club record fee of £6m to Newcastle United, Kieron played for England on 33 occasions and was a member of the international squads which reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup and European Championships.
Still regularly in the spotlight – he came fourth in TV’s I’m a Celebrity in 2015 – the industrious midfielder has returned to his boyhood team both on loan and as academy coach in the past. . .
