Liverpool football legend Dalglish to visit islands


Kenny Dalglish, the legendary former Celtic, Liverpool and Blackburn Rovers manager, is this year’s guest of honor for the annual Sunset Football Club’s fundraiser. 

Sunset brings a major name from sports to Cayman every year and has secured the renowned Scotsman at Margaritaville on Oct. 19. He is scheduled to play in the group’s golf scramble at the North Sound Club the next day. 

Mr. Dalglish, 62, had a glittering playing career spanning 22 years for Celtic and Liverpool, winning several honors. He is Scotland’s most capped player, with 102 appearances, and is also Scotland’s joint-leading goal scorer, with 30 goals. 

The ticket price includes a hot buffet, a question and answer session with Mr. Daglish, and an auction.  

Sunset’s Neil Purton said, “It’s going to be a great night. Kenny is coming on the Wednesday with his wife and there is already massive interest.  

“A lot of people are asking for tickets and they are not printed until next week. He is a legend, especially for the Scots. 

“We expect a good night and to raise lots of money. The golf with him the next day will be excellent.”
