Boston grammar school alumni Danny Butterfield
Guest speaker, Danny Butterfield
We are delighted to be able to announce details of the 2018 Boston Grammar School Alumni Annual Dinner. It will be held at the Boston & County Club, and the guest speaker this year will be Danny Butterfield.

You can order your dinner tickets on-line using the form at the bottom of this post.

Former professional footballer began his career as a youth with Grimsby Town. He then made 232 appearances for Crystal Palace before moving to Charlton Athletic, Southampton, Bolton Wanderers, Carlisle and Exeter City.

Danny was primarily utilised as a right back but often appeared in midfield. However, due to Palace’s financial problems that saw them put into administration, he was converted to a makeshift striker. Butterfield scored a hat-trick in the space of 6 minutes 48 seconds during a 2009-10 FA Cup fourth round replay 3-1 win against Wolves; he scored with his left foot, right foot and his head which is described as the ‘perfect hat-trick’. This is the club’s fastest ever hat-trick.

Danny made a total of 488 appearances in the Premiership and Football League and now a coach to the under 18 squad at Premiership Southampton.
