This years MUDSA dinner will be held on Friday 8th November, so the day after the 4th Europa Cup tie and before the Brighton home game.

As most of you know, we are one of the largest parties at the dinner, and following the jokes made by the compere last year about us only having 1 more person than the year before, I told him we will take 8 tables.

We currently have 80 confirmed, so all 8 tables are full, but we have some flexibility to increase this by taking some tables for 12 people. Thinking due ot the layout we would only be able to have 3-4 tables of 12, so 88 is the maximum number we should be looking at.

The guest speaker is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so what a coup that is for MUDSA

We will run buses, and it could be that we run a coach from Chapel and pick up in Whaley, New Mills and Disley before going on the bypass to OT. Another coach or mini buses from Glossop, Compstall & Marple, Hazel Grove, Davenport and Stockport as required.

The menu will be :

Starter – Mrs. Kirkham’s Cheese and Leek Tart, Heritage Tomato and Red Onion Salad, Smoked Sweet Vinaigrette Dressing

Main Course –Lake District Lamb Shank, Parmesan Mash, Wilted Cabbage, Carrot Puree, Minted Jus

Desert –Sticky Date and Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce, Vanilla Seed Ice Cream

Coffee & Mint Chocolates

The Vegetarian option to the main course is:

Beetroot and Ricotta Gnocchi, Textures of Greens, Slow Roast Beets, Balsamic Glaze, Tempura Leaves and Horseradish Cream


I have been very fortunate to get tickets for the dinner to be held this Sunday (16th June), to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Malta Branch, to be held in the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta.

We were also lucky enough to get invited to the 50th as well, so I feel this is a great honour for us, and if the evening is as good as that one, then it will be absolutely fabulous.

Alan Keegan and Paul Anthony will be the comperes for the evening, so that will be good, hoping to get a little time with Alan, as he is one of our branch members.

Not sure who the legends in attendance will be, but as we have VIP tickets, we should be able to get round a number of them and I am sure there will be photo’s posted on Facebook

Will follow up on this later
