ENGLAND AND LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL LEGEND JOHN BARNES WILL BE JOINING US!

 

An exciting day at our fantastic racecourse as we welcome the company of one of Britain's most famous Sporting Icons on this unique raceday at Warwick Racecourse on Friday 9th November.

 

In 2016 we hosted multi-Olympic Gold medal winning showjumper, Nick Skelton. Last year we welcomed Rugby World Cup winner, Mike Tindall.

 

This year we are pleased to welcome England and Liverpool Football legend John Barnes! Known for successful careers with Watford and Liverpool throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s and scooping 79 caps for England. Regularly cited as one of the most skilled and talented English players to play the game, John Barnes was voted Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year, twice, and also won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year. A true legend within his own right and we cannot wait to welcome him to Warwick.

 

Also known for his 1990 World Cup song ‘World in Motion’ sung with other members of the team as well as Manchester band New Order.

 

John will be the special guest of the Sporting Icon Brunch hosted by Rupert Bell.
