The Boys From Burnley
Paul Fletcher and Steve Kindon have been regular speakers on the After Dinner circuit for the past twenty years.
Over the last five years, they have come together to create the ‘Boys From Burnley’ show to bring something different to the well established ‘After Dinner’ entertainment and fundraising marketplace. With the resurgence of Burnley Football Club back onto the world stage their sense of teamsmanship and incredible sense of humour brings a new dimension to the traditional Sportsman’s Dinner. If your sporting dinner event is a little tired and needs something new, or you are looking to increase your revenues from a tried and tested formula . . . then look no further.
Steve Kindon has been a full time professional speaker for over twenty years following a distinguished footballing career with Burnley, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Huddersfield Town. Born into a rugby family, he played his first game of football in 1966 at the age of 15 and two years later was playing professional football for Burnley in the first division (now the premier league). He went on to make over 400 appearances scoring 160 goals. For 7 consecutive years, he won the professional footballers 100 meter sprint challenge and his incredible speed won him the nickname ‘Skippy’ at Turf Moo Burnley where he spent the majority of his footballing career. After 15 years in football he had a short spell as Commercial Manager at Huddersfield Town before his great success on the After Dinner circuit persuaded him to go full time.
