Rugby league legend launches new company and benefits local charities

Former Great Britain and rugby league great, Andy Gregory and business partner, Tony Baldwin, from the Wigan Training Company, have created AGA Events (aka Andy Gregory Associates), in order to organise high profile sporting events, evening dinners and charity auctions. Every event will be in association with celebrity guest speakers, who Andy has known, played with or met during his illustrious career.

The first event is “An evening with Great Britain Rugby League Legends – Andy Gregory, Paul Sculthorpe and Chris Joynt”, who have 85 international caps between them. The event takes place at the Totally Wicked stadium, St. Helens on Saturday 13 April from 19.00, John H. Stracey, the former boxing World Welterweight Champion will also be in attendance.

Commented Andy: “As two Wigan lads, Tony and I wanted to work together in the corporate hospitality area and also benefit local charities. The first charity will be the Wigan Youth Zone, who do some fantastic work with young people within our local community and we feel privileged to be able to help them

“Paul, Chris and I are extremely proud of our careers in the fantastic game, which is rugby league and look forward to describing some of the many stories and life skills which it has taught us.

“After the hotpot supper, we will talk about our clubs and international careers, from our early days as youngsters, to performing at the highest level on the world Rugby League stage.

“For our corporate guests, as well as a fun evening, we will also be sharing some of the motivational and team building advice we were given during our careers.

“I am sure we will get some great questions and the pressure is on, to be both entertaining and making the format a success.”

Added Anthony Ashworth-Steen, Executive Director, Wigan Youth Zone: “We are very grateful to Andy and Tony for organising this event, to benefit the Wigan Youth Zone. This has included sourcing raffle prizes and conducting the auction of some superb and unique sports memorabilia.

“Every penny will go to supporting young people having fun, being safe and developing skills which will stay with them throughout their lives.”

Don’t leave it too late and book your tickets now, since this event is sure to be a sell out. Tickets are £29.50 per person or £275.00 for a table of 10. Please visit Eventbrite to book.
