Watch BSB bosses bend it like Beckham
Two international footballers have been drafted in by top BSB team bosses to thrash the press in a charity footy match.
Ex-Liverpool star Dean Saunders and Leeds midfielder Tony Dorigo will join BSB riders Paul Jones and Dean Ellison to take on a load of bald, fat journalists at the Downes Sports Club in Hinckley, Leics on Friday, September 13 at 7.45pm – the night before qualifying for the Mallory BSB round. Admission is by raffle ticket, costing just £1.
After the match there’ll be a buffet and an auction/raffle draw for loads of top BSB prizes.
Proceeds will be split between Riders For Health and St John Ambulance.
