Whitley Bay held a successful Sportsman’s Dinner at the Village Hotel on Saturday evening.

The event was well supported and enjoyed by the audience, which included players, officials, supporters and other friends of the club.

Guest speaker Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson gave an excellent, informative talk on his career as a Premier League and England player and his brief period in management.

Comedian Gary Skyner then presided over an auction which included signed Newcastle and Sunderland shirts before entertaining everyone with his humour, which included a brief double act with Whitley Bay vice-chairman Peter Siddle.
