Tony Adams Receives Standing Ovation After Compelling Lunch Speech

In what may well be the post powerful speech ever delivered at a Sporting Club lunch Tony Adams received a standing ovation yesterday at our Mayfair Club. The legendary Arsenal player and captain spoke about his illustrious career winning practically everything in the game, but his account of his struggle with alcoholism and depression will leave those present in a packed dining room talking about it for many weeks. Joining Tony in the audience was the former England rugby lock forward Simon Shaw and Absolute Radio star Richie Firth. We also raised money for School Home Support, a charity that Tony is a patron of.
