Sporting success for Rushall

Plus news of presentation evening

Rushall Olympic recently hosted another of their popular Sportsman’s Evenings at their Dales Lane ground.

A packed club enjoyed a memorable evening with guest speaker, Jim Walker, a former player at Derby County under iconic manager, Brian Clough, Physio at Aston Villa working with managers such as Ron Atkinson and players such as the legendary Paul McGrath and also Assistant Manager at Walsall alongside Paul Merson.

Comedy was provided by top comedian, Jed Stone, and also in attendance on the top table were the Midlands’ favourite boxing promoter, Ron Gray and his son and MC for the evening, Steve Gray.

Nick Allen, Vice-Chairman of the Pics was delighted with the success of the event, ‘We enjoyed another brilliant Sportsman’s Evening at Rushall Olympic’.

'We have had so much positive feedback about the night and it was great to see so many returning faces including our supporters, Pics' manager, Neil Kitching, committee members and local businesses. Our guests enjoyed great entertainment and a delicious three-course meal and the atmosphere in the club was fantastic. Jim Walker has worked alongside some massive names in Midlands' football and it was fascinating to hear his stories about Brian Clough and his unique management style and character and also his well chronicled special relationship with Manchester United, Aston Villa and Republic of Ireland ace, Paul McGrath. It was a great evening’
