Shaun Briscoe launches his Testimonial events
1st February 2013
Shaun Briscoe, being one of only six players to have made more than 100 appearances for both Hull FC and Hull KR, is to launch his three-month RFL-approved Testimonial by staging a first-ever celebration of players who have served both the Airlie Birds and the Robins.
Special guests will be fellow double centurion Len Casey, who also coached Hull FC, and Anthony Sullivan, representing his late father Clive Sullivan MBE, who was the record holder with 565 games for both Humberside clubs.
More than 20 players and coaches who have served FC and KR have been invited to the Testimonial Dinner to be held at Willerby Manor Hotel, Hull, on the evening of Monday 25th March.
Tickets are priced £35 each and bookings can be made for any size of party eg two, six or eight, seated on tables of 10.
To book or for further information contact David Howes on 07814-937642 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Confirmed guests for the dinner, sponsored by Oracle Cost Consultants of St. Helens and featuring comedian Terry Cotta, include former Great Britain star Paul Rose, now resident in Manchester, Craig Hall, Ben Galea, Chris Chester, Liam Watts and Craig Murdoch.
Invites have been sent to Johnny Whiteley, Colin Hutton, Arthur Bunting and Lee Crooks as players and coaches, Mick Crane, Paul Eastwood, Stanley Gene, Graeme Horne and Josh Hodgson.
Briscoe commented: “I thoroughly enjoyed myself on and off the field with FC and then KR. Being one of the elite six players to have clocked up a century for both clubs, we look forward to help celebrate the 120 players who have worn both jerseys, 40-plus in the Super League era.”
