Ex Premier League star to speak at Norwich dinner
Former Premier League footballer and one-time Norwich City transfer target, Linvoy Primus, will be in the city on December 3 at the Norwich FGB Christmas dinner, talking about how his life was transformed when he became a Christian.
Linvoy started his top level footballing career in 1990 at Charlton Athletic, and over 18 years played for Charlton, Barnet, Reading and finally at Portsmouth, where his career came to an end through injury in December 2009.
He was so popular at Portsmouth that the Milton Stand at Fratton Park, was renamed “The Linvoy Primus Community Stand” in honour of his outstanding services to the club.
Linvoy released his autobiography in 2007 entitled “Transformed” and as well as being joint founder is actively involved with the Christian Charity “Faith and Football”.
He will be in Norwich on December 3 to share his inspirational story of his life in football and how through his amazing conversion to Christianity, he triumphantly overcame disillusionment, lack of self-belief and numerous rejections which led to a life and career that has been totally transformed.
As Linvoy tells of his Christian journey he hopes that his story and life experiences, will encourage, challenge and inspire others to have a relationship, like he has found, with Jesus Christ.
Linvoy was awarded an MBE in the 2015 News Years Honours list for his contribution to football and charities.
All are invited to hear Linvoy speak and enjoy a traditional Christmas dinner, all for just £15 per person.
The dinner will take place at the City Suite, Mercure Hotel, Boundary Road, Norwich NR3 2BA, 7pm for 7.30pm.
