UK football legend set to visit Bahrain




FORMER England international footballer Stuart Pearce will visit Bahrain next month for a speaking engagement ahead of this summer’s FIFA World Cup.

The former England under-21 manager, who also managed the Great Britain football team at the 2012 Olympics, will offer insights into his playing and managerial career during his talk at the Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel, Residence and Spa on April 10.

Retired boxing champion Joe Calzaghe was originally due to appear at the event, but had to withdraw “due to unforeseen circumstances”, according to organisers.

Tickets for the event cost BD25 and include dinner, entertainment by a British comedian, a raffle and a football and boxing memorabilia auction.

A raffle raising money for UK veterans’ charity, Help for Heroes, will also be held. For more information, call 34516455 or email
