Mike Whitehead’s testimonial thanks
Last updated at 16:30, Tuesday, 04 December 2012
RETURNING Barrow Raiders player Mike Whitehead continues to enjoy a successful testimonial year.
The 34-year-old Walneyite signed on for a third spell at Craven Park last month, with his testimonial for long service to the game in Cumbria in full swing.
The former Workington and Whitehaven player was joined at his latest event – a sportsman’s dinner at Hawcoat Park Sports Club – by St Helens greats Paul Sculthorpe and Sean Long.
Whitehead and Sculthorpe have a long history together, having both been part of the Wigan junior set-up in the 1990s before going their separate ways. Dave Whitehead, from the testimonial committee, said: “Mike and the testimonial committee would like to thank everyone who supported the sportsman’s dinner.
“Guest speakers Paul Sculthorpe and Sean Long, along with MC Mick ‘Braddy’ Bradshaw, did a top job entertaining the 140 attendees.”
The next event in the testimonial year is a cabaret night, at the Nines, Barrow, on Friday, January 18.
MC Peter Murphy will compere a night of local talent, including band Rush Hour and others.
Tickets cost £5 and are available by contacting Dave Whitehead on 07772 232987.
