THE Cowdenbeath FC 100 Club is hoping to top the £8,000 it raised for the club with its 2018 dinner, at this year's event on Saturday May 4.

The highly successful fundraising organisation, set up by fans, has arranged for its second annual Sportsmans Dinner to take place after the last home game against Clyde on May 4 in Wee Jimmies. The cost per ticket is £35.

Said the 100 Club's Brian Lumsden: "Last year we raised over £8,000 from the dinner which we ultimately donated to Cowdenbeath FC along with our normal donation from the 100 Club lottery – so we can maybe claim some credit in helping the club make headway this season when compared to the last two (no relegation play-off this season).

"Hopefully, we can help the club build on that progress going forward".

Added colleague Craig Bennet: "Last season’s dinner was a roaring success and we would look to replicate that with the speakers this year Joe Camay and John Gahagan, with cub chairman, Donald Findlay, once again agreeing to be our host for the evening in his own inimitable style!

"Messrs Gahagan and Camay are at the top of the tree on the after-dinner circuit so if you are looking for a good night out and some great laughs Wee Jimmies is the place to be after the Clyde game".

Tickets are available and can be arranged by contacting Brian or Craig– alternatively if you advise Cowdenbeath FC they will liaise with Craig and Brian. Tickets, as aforementioned, are on sale now priced £35 – be quick they are likely to be quickly snapped up.

John Gahagan, the ex-Motherwell and Morton player’s tales of woe about life in and out of football have whipped up a comical storm at every conceivable venue. An audience of 1,000 diners at the Grosvenor House Hotel, in London, saw John win another speaker of the year award. John's record to date is now: Five times invited to Speaker of the Year Awards. Five times winner! Whether flirting with triumph or disaster John's philosophy has always been the've got to laugh!

Before starting comedy full-time in 1992, Joe Camay had been a telephone engineer, a bookie and ran a unisex clothing store.

Joe's comedy ''career'' began at the sharp end in social clubs and he had a quick taste of TV when he appeared in a comedy series with amongst others, Alan Stewart and Dave Spikey.

In the succeeding years he has appeared on TV with the likes of Alistair McGowan, Bill Bailey, Lee Evans and Fred McAuley, Bob Monkhouse and Des O' Connor, as well as in numerous theatres around Britain.

Joe has performed on North sea oil rigs and in prisons. Over the last few years Joe has mainly worked the Sportsmen's after-dinner circuit, where he has created a niche for his brand of grown-up humour.
