Welsh football star Dean Saunders at Chester charity event

FORMER Liverpool, Aston Villa and Wales footballer Dean Saunders entertained an all male audience at The Slow Boat at the bi-annual sportsman’s evening in aid of Chronicle-backed charity Miles of Smiles.

After a full Chinese banquet, 130 guests were regaled with an account of an astonishing career in football at the highest level.

Impressionist Mike McGuire entertained everyone with his mimicry of past and present sporting icons.

A raffle and stand up bingo raised £1,500 and the evening was sponsored by Paul Edwards of PME Aerospace Inspections Ltd.

Local businesses and individuals provided the raffle prizes. A second event is to be held in October, again at The Slow Boat in Frodsham Street.
