Sadler’s Brewery have announced that they will be sponsoring the Duncan Edwards 60th Anniversary Tribute Dinner at the Copthorne Hotel on Thursday 11 October 2018.

Sadler’s Sales Director – Ian King said

‘Although we are now based at our Craft Brewery in Lye, near Stourbridge our roots go back to 1900 when Nathanial Sadler opened the original Sadler’s Brewhouse in Oldbury.

At Sadler’s we are very proud of our Black Country roots and delighted to be part of this tribute to Duncan Edwards who contributed so much to the sporting and cultural heritage of the area’

Ian continued

‘ To mark this special event we will be launching a special ‘Duncan Edwards Tribute Ale’ at the Dinner in October with all of the sales proceeds being donated to the work of the Duncan Edwards Tribute’

Copthorne General Manager – Simon Doyle said

Copthorne Merry Hill are extremely honoured to be hosting the Duncan Edwards tribute dinner in October 2018. 

We pride ourselves on being an integral part of the local community and having the opportunity to be involved in remembering the life of a local legend is a real privilege.

In 2001 the hotel hosted Duncan Edwards 65th Birthday dinner that was also organised by Jim Cadman. The guest of honour on the night was Duncan Edwards Mum, Sarah Ann and it was a very special evening indeed. 

All of the Copthorne team are delighted to have been given the chance to be part of this event to commemorate Duncan Edwards, Dudley’s local hero.

The Duncan Edwards Tribute – that also includes the recently extended Exhibition at Dudley Archives and the book – Black Country Boy to Red Devil – has been planned and organised by Jim Cadman who said

‘We have been delighted with the support that we have received throughout the Black Country for the events and activities that make up the Duncan Edwards Tribute with the increasing level of support from the business community being particularly encouraging’.
