Steve DaleySpeaker: Steve Daley

In September 1979 Steve famously joined Manchester City for a then British record transfer fee of £1,437,500. Having signed a ten year contract and leaving after just two, it soon became obvious it was not the most successful transfer in football!

Previous to this he had played for a number of clubs including Southampton, for which he scored a goal during his debut. He also played for the England Youth team, also scoring a goal in his debut match. After his stint at Manchester City, Steve transferred overseas (to get away from the press) to join the Seattle Sounders.

Steve returned to the UK to play for Burnley, then in his final year as a pro was at Walsall FC, he then went on to become the manager at Bromsgrove Rovers. Nowadays Steve concentrates on his After Dinner Speaking, he is a renowned and entertaining speaker.

Sid DennisComedian: Sid Dennis

Growing up in the family concern of scrap metal which had been established by his grandfather in 1884, Sid entered adulthood with an already well seasoned exceptional business sense and an astute ability to pick up on the humour in even the most mundane affairs of trade.

Sid’s capacity to relate these events in full glorious technicolour to anyone willing to listen led the way onto the after dinner circuit. Always inventive in the way he tells his tales, titillating the imagination and injecting life into all he recalls, the engagement of the specialised and professional skills of Sid Dennis will contribute tremendously towards a successful and enjoyable evening.

Sid Dennis has witnessed many changes within the Family business of Scrap Metal, as indeed, along with the Scrap Metal Industry itself, maintaining a progression and development meriting respectability. Sid who devotes the same effort and enthusiasm to Entertainment as he does to Scrap Metal has attained a reputation held with high regard within both industries.

The engagement of the formidable and intuitive abilities of Sid Dennis will influence immensely the production of a successful and entertaining evening. Sid appears at venues both within the UK and abroad. He has entertained audiences from a wide range of industries and organisations
