Heritage Lecture: The History of Sheffield United Football Club
6 June @ 19:00 - 21:00TBA
On Thursday 6 June in the Portland Works MakerSpace, our speaker will be John Garrett, the Club Historian for Sheffield United Football Club.
John has worked for the club for the last 20 years. His job covers a multitude of roles including community engagement, supporter liaison and arranging the fans’ and manager’s forums. He is perhaps best known as the driving force behind the club’s superb museum, “Legends of the Lane”. Football for John is more than just a game, it is something that gives people a sense of community and place, something that tells us who we are.
“The whole area round here came about as a result of the football club. The roads, the businesses, everything. We are just the current custodians of the football club and is up to us to pass it onto the next generation.” [Sheffield Star 8th Oct 18].
Tickets will be on sale in mid May.
