Alan Shearer hosts a private evening

Even football legends like Alan Shearer operate a Dad "taxi service" for his kids guests at a Private Evening with the star heard!

Alan was talking with BBC Look North Sports Presenter, Jeff Brown, at a function at St James' Park when he told corporate guests that he's often found doing the "school run" and ferries his three children to their own social engagements.

Apart from his chauffeuring service, he revealed at the fundraising event that he would definitely like to be a football manager at some point in his career - but for the moment was very happy with his television work. Alan's contract with the BBC runs for another couple of years.

Sports stars who attended the evening included Newcastle goalkeepers, Shay Given and Steve Harper and another former legendary Toon skipper, Bob Moncur.

As well as the interview session with Alan guests at the event enjoyed a dinner, comedy entertainment from Brendan Healy, music from the Paul James Trio and table magic from David Diamond.
