‘Grab life by the balls’ – Support United Glasgow FC and win 5 Tickets to John Hartson Foundation’s Sportsman’s Lunch

YESTERDAY on The Celtic Star we published an article on the incredible work going on at United Glasgow and we’d encourage you to read it and if possible share it among fellow Celtic supports on your own social media channels and WhatsApp groups – Hand in hand – Celtic, ‘Created by Immigrants’ and United Glasgow FC, ‘Refugees Welcome’.

Today we were contacted by Erin Lavelle who plays with the United Glasgow FC women’s team. Erin is a massive Celtic supporter and a reader of The Celtic Star to boot. Already thinking Erin has fine footballing tastes!

Erin has asked us to make Celtic supporters aware of a brilliant fundraiser for her Club, United Glasgow FC.

Celtic legend John Hartson and his special guest line up are coming together in support of the John Hartson Foundation at annual Sportsman’s Lunch on Friday 29 November at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel, Glasgow.

Not only does this event include a superb lunch, great company and a Q&A session with John and his special guest (to be announced shortly), but entertainment at the lunch will be provided by football impressionist Darren Farley.

This event has proved especially popular in the past and this year will be no different. Tickets are completely sold out. By lending a helping hand to United Glasgow you could be there for this must see event.

Events like the Sportsman’s Lunch help raise funds for wonderful organisations who do truly amazing work for people living with cancer.


United Glasgow FC have two 5 ticket packages for this wonderful event to raffle for the John Hartson Foundation’s Annual Sportsman’s Lunch on Friday 29 November at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel, Glasgow. These have been kindly donated so proceeds of the raffle will go towards UGFC.

You can get involved but you’ll need to act fast! As Big Bad John’s charity says ‘Grab life by the balls’.

The raffle sale of tickets will close on the 16 November and draw will take place 17 November.

You can follow this link to have a chance of getting yourself and four friends along to this amazing event. You’ll also be raising funds for the amazing work United Glasgow FC do. It’s a no brainer as they say.


A big thank you to Erin for bringing this to our attention. The Celtic Star will also be keeping you up to date with what’s going on at UGFC over the next few weeks and we wish Erin and all the players at United Glasgow FC the very best of luck this season.

Come on Bhoys and Ghirls dig deep for a fine cause.

As a Bellshill Bhoy I was taken to my first Celtic game in the summer of 1987. It was Billy McNeill’s return to Celtic Park as manager and Celtic lost 5-1 to Arsenal . I thought I was a jinx, I think my Grandfather might have thought the same. It was finest gift anyone ever gave me when he walked me through Parhead's gates.
