Cooking Up A Storm

Chopra And Fuller Attend Sign And Dine

Michael Chopra and Ricardo Fuller were in attendance at Rowley's last night for another successful ‘Sign and Dine’ event.

Supporters had the chance to meet the Blackpool strike duo in the restaurant, with Seasiders young and old taking the opportunity to pose for photos and get autographs.

With both players helping out in the kitchen, guests were treated to a two-course meal for just £15. 

Prior to that, the players took time out to talk to the club’s official website about their culinary skills (or lack of). 

“I normally leave all that to the missus and watch Sky Sports News to be honest," said Fuller, who helped prepare some delicious jerk chicken. “But for some reason I do like watching Come Dine with Me, even though I’m not the best at cooking, I think I’d struggle massively if I went on that.

Chopra, however, fancied himself as a bit of a guru in the kitchen and helped rustle up a beef curry. 

“I’m not too bad to be fair. I did one of these type of events about four years ago when I was at Cardiff," he said. "Obviously Rugby is quite big down there, so me and the gaffer, Dave Jones, were up against one of the rugby boys and their manager.

“It's mainly me who does the cooking at home because the missus looks after the little boy, so I'm not a stranger to the kitchen put it that way.”

The night was rounded off with a Blackpool quiz, giving participants the chance to win a signed shirt or signed ball.

Video footage from the 'Sign and Dine' evening will be available to watch on the club's official YouTube channel a little later.
