Bearspaw, Alberta, March 21, 2012 – The Bearspaw Glendale Community Association (BGCA) is proud to announce that Bryan Robson, Global Ambassador for Manchester United, will golf in their 2nd Annual Golf Tournament to be held June 25th at the Bearspaw Country Club in support of the proposed expansion to the Bearspaw Lifestyle Centre.
“I am excited about coming to Calgary and working with the kids involved with football,” Robson said adding that he turned down television appearances in Europe to participate in the event.
Robson started his soccer career at West Bromwich Albion prior to moving to Manchester United. There, he played in 345 games, scoring 74 goals and was dubbed Captain Marvel by the press and fans alike. He captained Manchester United for 12 years and was skipper to Team England on 65 occasions. In 90 games for the Three Lions, Robson scored 26 goals. Throughout his illustrious career, Robson won such important trophies as the FA Premier League (1993, 1994), FA Cup (1983, 1985, and 1990); League Cup (1992), UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup (1991) and the UEFA Super Cup (1991).
“Bryan Robson appearing in Bearspaw will elevate our neighborhood and bring attention to the area and what we are trying to achieve here,” said Jens Lipper, Chair of the BGCA and the Bearspaw Soccer Committee.
In addition to his participation in the golf tournament, Robson will be involved in three days of ‘football’ activities as part of Bearspaw Soccer’s Euro 2012 celebration. He will lend his expertise to players during special team practices and in a team scouting tournament. The BGCA is planning a feature event, entitled ‘An evening with Bryan Robson’, which will include a question and answer period with the player. (Tickets will be available soon at www.bearspawlc.ca.)
