Plymouth Euro 2024 Big Screen Event

We are delighted to welcome clients old and new to our big screen football dinner featuring the third Euro 2024 group match between England and Slovenia!

It is our great pleasure to confirm that we will be joined for the evening by two of English football’s greatest characters and best speakers, Paul Merson and Neil “Razor” Ruddock. Our two VIP guests are renowned for their treasure trove of hilarious stories from their careers which are sure to have the room in stitches! Guests will enjoy a memorable evening of football chat and analysis of the big match, in Plymouth’s finest corporate venue.

With a drinks reception and photo opportunity with Paul and Razor included in our upgrade package option, a fantastic three course dinner prepared by the award-winning Crowne Plaza team, a memorabilia auction and the opportunity to hear from these two brilliant characters, this is an evening not to be missed!

England vs Slovenia

If all goes to plan England’s final group game against Slovenia could give the Three Lions the opportunity to top the group should they be victorious. The last couple of matches against Slovenia, during the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign, were very tight games indeed, a 0-0 draw in the first leg followed by a very tight 1-0 victory at Wembley courtesy of an injury time winner from Harry Kane. Although only ranked 55 in the world, the Slovenians are captained by Atletico Madrid’s world class goalkeeper, Jan Oblak, with RB Leipzig starlet Benjamin Šeško providing a genuine goal threat up top. Harry Kane and his men will need to be at their best as any complacency will be capitalised upon. With the likes of Jude Bellingham, Phil Foden, Declan Rice and Trent Alexander-Arnold in their ranks, England will start as hot favourites!

Paul Merson

After making his debut in 1986, Paul was a regular on the right wing in the unforgettable 1988-89 season, when Michael Thomas scored with almost the last kick of the season at Anfield to bring the title back to Highbury. During that legendary season, Paul scored 10 goals from the wing, broke into the England U21 side, and was named the PFA Young Player of the Season. He went on to have a long and glorious career with The Gunners, making 423 appearances and scoring 99 goals in all competitions; he won another League title in 1991, as well as the FA and League Cups in 1993, and the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1994. His first senior England cap came in 1991, and although he wasn’t always a regular, he went on to win 21 caps for his country, scoring 3 goals. On leaving Arsenal, he enjoyed spells with Middlesbrough, Aston Villa and Portsmouth. One of the game’s most colourful characters, Paul is now one of the most highly-rated speakers on the circuit, and a regular pundit on Sky Sports.

Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock

A fearsome competitor on the pitch who pushed the boundaries of physical intimidation, ‘Razor’ Ruddock was a striker’s nightmare, as a tough-tackling centre back with confidence on the ball, and an eye for a goal. In a 17-year career played almost entirely in the top flight, Neil starred for Millwall, Spurs, Southampton, Liverpool and West Ham, winning the League Cup whilst at Anfield in 1995. His colourful career was littered with on-field altercations with other hardmen of the day including the likes of Eric Cantona, and perhaps most famously, with Arsenal’s Patrick Vieira in 1999. With 466 appearances in all competitions and almost 50 goals, Neil was a free-scoring centre back, gaining his only England cap under Terry Venables, against Nigeria in 1994. Since retiring in 2003 he has featured many times on TV including in I’m A Celebrity, Celebrity Big Brother and Celebrity Masterchef, and most recently some hilarious antics on ITV’s ‘Harry’s Heroes’ with Harry Redknapp!

Dave Fulton (Sky Sports)

Dave enjoyed a 15-year professional cricket career with Kent, playing in 200 First Class matches with an average in the high 30s, and over 100 one day games. His best season came in 2001, when he scored an incredible 1892 First Class runs at an average of just under 76, being crowned PCA Player of the Year. Since retiring from the game in 2006, Dave has forged a career as a sports journalist and event host, appearing regularly on Sky Sports’ cricket coverage and as a presenter on Sky Sports News. A huge sports fan, Dave has previously hosted our Long Room Lunch at Lord’s, Gold Cup Lunches, Football World Cup big screen events and boxing hospitality, and brings a high level of knowledge and professionalism to our events.
