Our series of polls coincide with the ‘Carling Presents an Evening of Legends’ promotion which allows supporters of each top-tier team to take part in an open Q&A forum with their heroes.

Tonight's event - the fourth in the series - will see Cliftonville fans quiz club captain Chris Scannell and legends Marty Tabb and John Platt.

Previous nights featured Glentoran, Lisburn Distillery and Glenavon.

The BBC’s Jackie Fullerton is hosting each evening and also blogging on each event on the Carling Website.

“I am delighted to be involved in Carling Presents", said Jackie. "It provides football fans with a fantastic opportunity to find out more about the legends and star players of their favourite teams in the Carling Premiership”.

Geoff Wilson from The IFA said: “These events show Carling’s dedication to helping football fans get closer to the team they support. I believe the events will be a big success and fans should register their interest now as places are limited.”

Tickets for these exclusive events are free but places are limited so you are advised to register your interest early. Over 18's only and proof of age may be required. Each event takes place at the relevant club's ground and kicks off with a Carling Drinks Reception at 7.30pm. To apply for a ticket go to the Carling Premiership website.
