“If you want a speaker that can deliver a great speech with humour, then look no further – even though his background is professional footballer, Steve Daley would be an ideal speaker for any type of event – round table, rotary, sporting dinner, golf day, stag or mixed audience – any age. Without a doubt, in the 15 years Archway Events has been trading and after working with literally hundreds of former sporting greats, Steve Daley is one of the best !”

"Hi Steve, I have seen you perform on the after dinner circuit with James H Reeve in Altrincham for Sale United FC two years ago and I must say you were absolutely hilarious. Your after dinner performance speech seems very realistic with a few things thrown in to add to the comical situations you found yourself in."


"I have been on the After Dinner circuit since 1989 as a Speaker and Corporate Comedian. During this time I have been to countless Sportsman's Dinners and Steve is the funniest sporting speaker I have worked with, and he's a really nice bloke. Makes you sick doesn't it ?" Brian Newbold "The Man from the Coal Board" www.briannewbold.com



"I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Steve at many Sporting Dinners , mixed evenings and presentation nights and without doubt rate him as one of the best all-round speakers on the circuit, and a great character to boot!!"

Ken Davies MBE Master of Ceremonies/Compere/Dinner Organiser


"My name is Tim Burton, and I own the Coachman pub in Hartford,Cheshire. I am also chairman of the pubs Sunday League side. As the cost of running the team is fairly expensive, we decided to stage a Sportsmans dinner in order to raise some much needed cash.

I have probably attended approximately 40 such dinners over the last 35 years or so, and have seen most well known speakers in that time. I first saw Steve 3-4 years ago at a local junior football club fund raiser. He was absolutely hilarious and I commented to many people that he was without doubt the best speaker that I had ever seen.

Therefore it was a no brainer when we needed to think of someone for our Sunday side dinner, and this duly took place in October 2009. Steve brought the house down, as he had done on the previous occasion that I saw him, it's not just the tales that he tells but his delivery which is as good as any professional comedian. Added to all of that, we found him to be an extremely genuine bloke for whom nothing was too much trouble. The only hitch on the night was that the microphone went chips, but Steve carried on regardless and it did not detract from the evening one iota."

All those present want to see him again and that will be arranged. Finally we made an excellent profit on the night which set the club up nicely for the season.


We booked Steve for our annual Gentleman’s Dinner. This was our best ever dinner, he brought the house down with his stories and comedy. I would recommend Steve as a speaker for any sporting event, he was very, very funny.”

Elliot Landy, Director - MediaMad


'Steve is without doubt one of the funniest speakers on the circuit. Mixing a true feel for the game with his amazing sense of humour. These words are not only mine but every guest at our Annual Sportsman's Dinner, which after 17 years , shows the impact Steve had on his audience at our recent Dinner. The times I have booked or just been along to see Steve speak have been worth every penny as his entertainment value is second to none and his time is your time for the entire evening.' A MUST SEE Ian Kitching(East Rainton Cricket Club)


"Steve has been guest speaker on several occasions in support of Junior Football events held at Eastlands. His speech is very entertaining and professionally delivered with great humour!"

Bernard Halford, (Secretary) Manchester City FC


"I have booked Steve Daley for many events and I consider him to be one of the very best on the circuit. He is a fantastic entertainer, suitable for all audiences and even more importantly he is great company too!"
