Bruce Grobbelaar & Matt LeTissier

What a fantastic Birmingham Gold Cup Lunch we had this year! Once again, the Banqueting Suite at Edgbaston provided the perfect backdrop for a day of racing thrills, delicious food, and legendary tales.

Our special guests were top-notch! Liverpool’s iconic goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar and Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier shared stories from their careers, both on the club and international stage. Grobbelaar had everyone roaring with laughter as he relived his famous “wobbly knees” routine that helped Liverpool win the 1984 European Cup Final!

Le Tissier, known for his incredible penalty record (47 out of 48!), kept us captivated with the tale of his one and only miss. Keeping the laughs flowing was comedian Paul McCaffrey, whose witty banter had everyone in stitches.

The racing itself was a rollercoaster of excitement! Guests cheered on their picks, placing friendly wagers with the in-house bookies. Expert tipster Brendan Powell even managed to predict the winner of the Main Race (Galopin Des Champs at 3:30pm!) along with two other top finishers – not bad, eh?

We’re sure everyone left with a smile on their face. We can’t wait to see you all again next year for an even bigger and better Birmingham Gold Cup Lunch!
