Last week, three of the CMS team (Pat, Mark and Jake) attended a Gentlemen’s Sporting Dinner at The Manor Golf Club in Drighlington, West Yorkshire to help raise money for Drighlington FC junior teams.
In attendance was Southampton FC legend, and Sky Sports Pundit Matt Le Tissier, who didn’t disappoint, delivering a fantastic speech captivating the 160 strong crowd in attendance.
Now, here are a few facts about Matt Le Tissier:
- Played his whole professional career at Southampton, from 1986 to 2002 – where they nicknamed him ‘Le God’
- The second-highest ever scorer for Southampton FC with 209 goals in 540 appearances, only falling short to Mick Channon
- Matt was known for his spectacular goals, which was represented in the 1994-1995 season when he won Goal Of The Season for his outstanding goal against Blackburn
- Considered one of the greats from 12 yards, scoring 47 out of the 48 penalties taken in his career
All in all a great evening, which also included a stand up by comedian Jamie Sutherland, and a charity auction, all going to a good cause.
