An Evening with Ron Atkinson & Tom Ross
October 9 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm BSTfrom £20.00
An Evening with Ron Atkinson & Tom Ross is coming to the Austin Sports & Social Club, Longbridge, a night not to be missed.
‘Big Ron’ played for Oxford United, where his robust style in midfield earned him the nickname The Tank, and he then set off on a managing marathon with Kettering Town, Cambridge United, West Bromwich Albion, Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, Sheffield Wednesday, Aston Villa, Coventry City and Nottingham Forest.
Tom started reporting on football matches for BBC Radio Birmingham (now BBC WM) working for Sports Editor Tim Russon. His first game for the BBC was a Blues pre season friendly against AJAX in 1977.
In 1981 Tom was contacted by the BRMB Sports Editor Tony Butler who offered him a job his first day at BRMB saw him covering Stoke v Blues which ended in a nil nil draw.
Come and join Ron & Tom for what can only be described as a football fans great night out. We also have a great comedian, host to entertain throughout the evening.
