Talking of Legends
« on: December 13, 2019, 05:20:50 PM »
Tomorrow will not only see Mick Wrights passing with a minutes applause or silence but also another legend for his hospitality and catering skills has also died this week. Les Philp for many years responsible for the hospitality and catering for KLTFC, also owner of Grants Restaurant in King's Lynn, ex manager of Hunstanton Fc and Arsenal and King's Lynn FC fanatic, died at the age of 70.
His 3 course lunches for 10 were phenominal and fully booked week in and week out plus the Christmas lunches that myself and kevin Chase used to put on for a FULL Blue and gold Club every pre Christmas matchday.
R.I.P both Mick and Les. Neither will ever be forgotten, one for his football skills the other for his culinary skills (as well as his football support).

Very well put Chilly ,knew Mick over the years always a complete gentleman on and off the pitch, and used to have the pre match lunch on many occasions and can say it was always very good.
