Hartson At Christ The King Club Former Wales international John Hartson will be reminiscing about his career at Christ the King Club in Coundon on Saturday November 23rd. 

The former Coventry and Celtic hit-man, started his 15-year professional career at Luton Town before moving to Arsenal in 1995. Spells at West Ham, Wimbledon and the Sky Blues followed and then came a move to Celtic. He spent five years at Celtic where he won three Scottish Premier League titles, two Scottish Cup winners medals and one Scottish League Cup winners medal.

He won 51 Wales caps and scored 14 international goals.

In 2009, at the age of thirty four, John was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Desperately ill (the cancer had spread to his brain and lungs) he had lifesaving surgery and spent many weeks in intensive care.

Thankfully he has made a miraculous recovery and now devotes a great deal of time to the charity setup in his name – the John Hartson Foundation. 

Now a regular in the media with punditry and commentary work, Hartson has many stories to tell from his time in football and has become a very popular after dinner speaker. 

Tickets for the talk, which will be compered by Billy Bell from Coventry City's Former Players' Association, are priced at £20 which includes chicken and chips.
