Tickets for the evening are priced at £10, and the evening will also include an auction of sporting memorabilia gathered from a wide range of different sports and football clubs. All Profits from the evening will go to TrustSTFC & the Red Army Fund.

TrustSTFC Fundraising officer Paul Wardell commented 'We decided upon doing 'An Evening with....' and it was decided that the man we would most like to get along was Lou Macari. We managed to get in contact and he was only too pleased to come to Swindon for the evening, the only problem we had was agreeing a date due to Lou`s busy schedule!

Wardell continued 'This is a fantastic coup for supporters to be able to meet and talk to Lou Macari and hear about how he took STFC from Div 4 to the verge of Div 1. Lou is classed as a legend by many supporters, we are extremely grateful to him for finding time in his busy schedule to come down to Swindon for the evening and help us to raise funds'
