Dale manager Keith Hill to swap dugout for Feel Good kitchen

Rochdale AFC Manager Keith Hill is returning to Rochdale Feel Good Festival – to serve up his perfect match of the day – football and food. 

The League One boss and his assistant Chris Beech will be on stage with Rochdale star chef Andrew Nutter at 2pm on Friday 19 August.

It’s the second time Keith has tried his hand in the kitchen at the festival – he went down a storm in 2015 when he entertained crowds with his culinary skills.

Rochdale AFC are an official partner of the event and will also be hosting a penalty shoot-out competition, a festival club shop selling their new training wear and replica shirts and there will be guest appearances by their mischievous mascot Desmond the Dragon!

Keith Hill, Manager of Rochdale AFC said:

“I’m looking forward to coming down to the festival with Chris and a couple of our players, and cooking on stage with Andrew. It’s a fantastic event and I think it’s great that the football club are involved again.”
