A HOST of former professional footballers will take on Wirral FC players in a charity match next month.

Former Tranmere Rovers legend, Dave Higgins said: "We're looking forward to raising as much money as we can for the charities.

"It'll be fantastic to be back on the pitch again with some of my former teammates, too.

"It would be great if people come down and gave us their support, even if football isn’t really their thing, a donation could make a real difference."

The match kicks-off at 2pm at Kirklands Stadium, St Peters Road, Rock Ferry and is £5 for Adults and £3 for Children which can be paid on the gate with all proceeds going to the charities.

After the match, the Lyceum Club in Port Sunlight will host a fundraising evening with entertainment from local singer Brian Hardman and a disco hosted by DJ Chris Jones.

It promises to be a great day and evening in support of Wirral charities.
