Molby tickets up for grabs

TICKETS are still up for grabs for the latest Sportsman’s Evening in Hucknall, which features Liverpool legend Jan Molby.

The Rolls-Royce Leisure Club welcomes Molby (now 48) next Thursday (September 22) — and organiser Jez Corthorn reports that places, priced £20, which includes food and a session by a comedian, remain available.

Molby, who won 33 caps for Denmark between 1982 and 1990, is remembered fondly by all fans at Anfield, where he made a total of 292 appearances and scored 61 goals, most of them penalties, after being signed by manager Joe Fagan from Ajax in 1984.

He starred in the Liverpool side that landed the league and cup double in 1985/86, winning the man-of-the-match award in an all-Merseyside FA Cup final against Everton.

In all, Molby spent 12 years at Anfield. After finishing his playing career with Swansea City, he had unsuccessful stints as a manager with Swansea, Kidderminster Harriers and Hull City.

His career was not without controversy too. During the 1988/89 season, he was jailed for three months for reckless driving after his car overturned outside a Merseyside nightclub.

However, to this day, Liverpool’s official website still refers to Molby as “the finest passer of a football ever to pull on the red shirt”.

For tickets, ring Corthorn on 07910 392751.
