Sean Connery charity football match remembered

15-May-2013 • Actor News

Sir Sean Connery participated in a little-known charity football match before he was the big Bond star, in 1960.

On Sunday February 28 1960, a programme discovered by the Leamington Observer showed that Connery was part of the Showbiz XI, who played against an All-Star XI.

Joining the then-29-year-old actor was Ronnie Carroll, Irish musician and Italian musician Toni Dalli.

The programme sold on Ebay for just £15.
