Speakeasy Club is delighted to welcome Nottingham Forest and Wales legend, Mark Crossley to the virtual clubhouse on Wednesday 15th June 2022 at 730pm.

As a player, Mark was a goalkeeper from 1988 until 2011 and he has previously played for numerous clubs in England’s top flight, notably for Nottingham Forest, where he became the only goalkeeper to stop a Matt Le Tissier penalty kick.

Mark also played for Manchester United, Millwall, Middlesbrough, Stoke City, Fulham, Sheffield Wednesday (and scored!), Oldham Athletic and Chesterfield.

As part of our commitment to being inquisitive, learning about others and ourselves, On the 1st March we launched our #shareyourshirt campaign.

On the evening of 15th June, we will be encouraging you to wear your favourite football shirt. It can be for any reason whatsoever. We want to start conversations with like-minded people, find out about why that shirt and that team. The aim is to encourage people to learn something they didn’t know before, promoting curiosity and openness.

There will be a special prize for anyone wearing a classic Crossley Nottingham Forest shirt!

So sit back in the comfort of your own home surrounded by friends or your own company and join us for a fantastic evening.

We really look forward to welcoming you to the Clubhouse on the 15th June, so sign up through the above link to secure your place and donate to a fantastic charity!

Simon and the Speakeasy Club Team.
