FORMER England goalkeeper Peter Shilton has been confirmed as the main speaker at a fund-raising lunch next month.

Mr Shilton was infamously beaten by Diego Maradona’s ‘hand of God’ goal in the 1986 World Cup encounter with Argentina.

But as England’s most-capped footballer he has a fund of footballing anecdotes to share with the Milton Keynes Sporting Lunch Club at Jurys Inn, Central Milton Keynes, on Friday, February 17.

The sporting lunch club raises funds for SportsAid, which has financially supported many of Britain’s rising sports stars, including Olympic medal winners, over the years.

Sporting Lunch Club meetings are usually very well attended and the organisers have a number of high profile events planned for this year, which not only sees the Olympics but also the European Football Championships. The lunches, sponsored by the Citizen and a host of other high-profile local businesses, start at 12.30 for 1pm.

The cost is £28.50 per person, plus a £10 raffle, and there are tables available for 10-12 people.
