Former England rugby captain Lewis Moody MBE is the latest sporting legend to visit the Goldsands Stadium.

The flanker, who formed part of the 2003 World Cup winning squad, will be speaking at the club`s next Sportsman`s Dinner on Thursday 28th February 2013.

As well as enjoying a three course meal, guests will be treated to stories from the 34-year-old`s successful career, which included spells at Leicester Tigers and Bath, before his retirement earlier this year.
Moody, who earned himself the nickname ‘Mad dog` for the ferocious fashion in which he played the game, is certain to have an array of tales to tell from a career which, as well as winning the World Cup, includes seven Premiership titles and three Heineken Cups.

Comedian John Stiles, who is a firm favourite on the comedy circuit and son of football legend Nobby Stiles, will also join the rugby star in entertaining guests on the night.

Other guests will include Cherries boss Eddie Howe, his assistant Jason Tindall and playing legend Steve Fletcher.

AFC Bournemouth commercial director Rob Mitchell was delighted to confirm Moody as guest speaker.

“We`re delighted that Lewis will be attending and speaking at our highly popular Sportsman`s Dinner,” he said.

“It`s important that we promote our Goldsands Stadium as a destination offering a range of events and functions. Inviting Lewis Moody, who has a successful background in rugby, will provide something different for the regular attendees of our Sportsman`s Dinners, as well as attract a new audience of people to the venue.

“We`re very much looking forward to the great stories he has to tell from his vast experience playing at the top level of English rugby.”

Prices are just £475 for a table of ten, or £50 for individual places and are subject to VAT. These prices include a welcome drink on arrival, followed by a three course dinner with wine and coffee.
