Poll: Institute Legends

Institute fans are being offered a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with manager John Gregg and legends Graeme Philson, Paul Kee and Trevor Porter in the latest ‘Carling Presents an Evening of Legends’ event in Londonderry on Wednesday 27th January.

This will be the sixth out of 12 ‘Carling Presents an Evening of Legends’ events hosted by the BBC Sport’s Jackie Fullerton. The free events allow fans to quiz the legends and star players of their team, have a picture taken with them and the Gibson Cup and enjoy some ice-cold pints of Carling.

Fans will no doubt want to ask John Gregg his thoughts on the season so far in the Carling Premiership. As well as legends Graeme Philson and Paul Kee, the line-up includes Trevor Porter who has been a player, manager and Chairman over the years with Institute so there should be plenty of footballing wisdom as well as career highs and lows to share with the fans.

The Institute evening takes place at the Icon Restaurant, Waterside.

Aisling Duffy Carling Marketing Manager is delighted with the success of the events so far.

“We created the Carling Presents evenings to help the fans get closer to legends and star players from their favourite teams in the Carling Premiership. Institute’s event will mark the end of the first half of the events so we still have six more to go and we are delighted with how well they have been received by fans.

“The evenings have allowed for some fantastic football banter as fans have put the players and legends under the spotlight with every topic covered from best goal or player to career highs and lows to changing room secrets!” said Aisling.

Tickets for these exclusive events are free but places are limited. You can register for Institute’s event or the other six remaining Legend events taking place at

Fans unable to attend can view all of the action from the night online as well as joining in the debate about your favourite team and reading Jackie Fullerton’s thoughts on the events.
