The 4th Annual Gala Evening and Dinner, organised by Los Amigos de Mazarron FC in support of Mazarron Football Club, will be held at the Hotel la Cumbre, Puerto de Mazarron on Tuesday 12th March 2013. The speaker will be Steve Daley the former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester City player who became Britain’s second million pound footballer, after Trevor Francis, when he joined Manchester City from Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1979 for a British record transfer fee of £1,437,500.
His transfer to Manchester City was later described in an article in The Observer as “the biggest waste of money in football history”. Steve is now acknowledged as one of the best and funniest after dinner speakers on the circuit and was voted Football Speaker of the Year in 2009 and 2010.His act includes a scathing self-assessment of his time at Maine Road with Manchester City. Steve later had a more successful spell in the United States with Seattle Sounders and San Diego Sockers and he made 6 appearances for the England “B” team.

It is hoped that Tony Currie, ex Sheffield United, Leeds and England and Mark Higgins formerly of Everton and Manchester United will again be present. Tony is the Los Amigos de Mazarron FC UK Ambassador and has attended the last two Gala Evenings
