We hosted a fascinating evening of football entertainment with a line up of top Managers on Thursday 26 November 2009, at The St John’s Hotel, Solihull. Our guest speakers were Alex McLeish (Birmingham City Manager), Chris Coleman (Coventry City Manager), Ron Atkinson (Former Aston Villa & Man Utd Manager) and Frank Clark (Former Nottingham Forest Manager).

The guys had some fantastic stories with McLeish talking about his early playing days under Sir Alex Ferguson at Aberdeen, Coleman spoke about adapting to life in the Premier League as a young manager, Atkinson chatted about managing at Old Trafford and what it was like to work under Doug Ellis at Aston Villa and Clark about winning the European Cup under Brian Clough.

The below photos capture some of the evening’s best moments.
