Former AFC Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn wows crowd at charity event

FORMER AFC Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn wowed the crowd at a special charity event.

An Audience with Jeff Mostyn, hosted by Warren Munson from Evolve, took place at Parkstone Yacht Club in Poole in aid of Lewis-Manning Hospice Care.

During the event, which saw the colourful former football man regale fans and charity supporters with stories of his life, he was also confirmed as a patron of the charity, following his most famous manager at Bournemouth, Harry Redknapp and wife, Sandra.

“It was a heart-warming event at which Jeff entertained his audience as he took them on a wonderful journey of his life, from his humble northern roots, leaving school at just 15, facing adversity, his diverse working career successes, his enduring passion for football and of course his history with his beloved AFC Bournemouth and their fairy tale success,” a spokesperson said.

When asked, ‘What advice would you give to your younger self?’, Jeff said: “Stand up for yourself, never let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve.”

And his definition of personal success?

“Achieving your dreams and your goals within your limitations and not what other people expect of you,” he said.

There was a flurry of questions at the end, with Jeff in no rush to leave his captivated audience, who thanked him for his loyalty to AFC Bournemouth and his unwavering commitment to the club and its fans.

Clare Gallie, chief executive at Lewis-Manning, said: “Wow, what a pleasure it was to have Jeff and his wife Rosie with us this evening. What a journey to hear about.

“We are so pleased to welcome Jeff on board as a patron too, it’s a real honour to have his continued commitment to our charity.”

Warren added: “Jeff’s whole story and the candid and honest manner in which he shared it meant that he was such a huge inspiration to everyone in the room.

“I interview many people but this conversation was one of the most enjoyable ever.”
