YEOVIL NEWS: Liverpool legend is a hit at Yeovil Round Table charity luncheon
MEMBERS of Yeovil Round Table and their guests were assured to be in safe hands on Friday (November 17, 2017) when Liverpool Football Club goalkeeping legend Bruce Grobbelaar was the guest speaker at the fundraising organisation’s annual charity luncheon.
Grobbelaar made 440 appearances during a success-strewn Anfield career which spanned from 1981 to 1994.
During that time he helped Liverpool to win the old First Division championship, now the Premier League, on six occasions, the FA Cup and League Cup three times apiece, five FA Charity Shield wins, and the European Cup in 1984 when they defeated Roma 4-2 on penalties after extra-time.
