CHELSEA’S FIRST black player will be centre of attention again on December 2.
Paul Canoville, who played for the club between 1981 – 86, via the Paul Canoville Foundation will be hosting the second Black & Blue Legends event at Under The Bridge at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge ground.
The event is endorsed by The FA, The PFA, Financial Logistics, Ballina Management Services and Eat Sicily.
The upcoming event will have a Q&A with a panel of footballers and celebrities which will include DJ Trevor Nelson, Frank Sinclair, Michael Duberry, Eddie Newton and Pat Nevin – with more still to be confirmed.
The evening is a celebration of Chelsea’s black players – former, present and future.
The December 2 occasion will be attended by many of the foundation’s charity partners and friends, as well as members of the general public. There will be a raffle, auction and dancing until late.
The Paul Canoville Foundation was founded to work with young people facing economic, physical or mental adversity to build life-skills, resilience and support networks to build a better future for themselves and their community.
