Western Mail - - NEWS -

RYAN Giggs has been re­vealed as the celebrity guest who will switch on New­port’s Christ­mas lights.

The 44-year-old Wales man­ager will switch on the Christ­mas lights in the city cen­tre on Satur­day, Novem­ber 17.

It will be the sec­ond year a Wales boss has vis­ited the city to mark the start of the Christ­mas shop­ping sea­son, fol­low­ing Chris Cole­man’s ap­pear­ance last year.

Ryan Giggs took over as Wales man­ager in Jan­uary this year fol­low­ing a 23-year play­ing ca­reer with Manch­ester United which saw him win 13 Premier League ti­tles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, two UEFA Cham­pi­ons Leagues, one FIFA Club World Cup, one In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Cup, one UEFA Su­per Cup, and nine FA Com­mu­nity Shields.

Giggs will take to the stage at 5.15pm with New­port mayor Cllr Mal­colm Lin­ton and one more spe­cial guest to switch on the lights. The switch-on will take place at the end of an event or­gan­ised by the city’s New­port Now Busi­ness Im­prove­ment District.
