For all true Football fans

A reminder of the game been held in memory of Matt Gadsby, the ex walsall player who tragically passed away on the pitch early this season whilst playing for Hinkley. As you can see this is a worth while cause and any contribution would be appreciate.

Official Press release from Hinckley United today:

Matt Gadsby Memorial Match - Sunday 1st April
A legends team - featuring several former internationals - will be managed by Barry Fry and captained by Matt Le Tissier. The team will take on Hinckley United in the first half and then in the second half a side made up of team-mates of Matt Gadsby at Kidderminster Harriers, Mansfield Town, Walsall and Forest Green Rovers.

Players lined up to take part along with Le Tissier include Peter Shilton, Paul Parker, Steve Hodge, Matt Elliott, Jan Molby, Nigel Clough, Paul Walsh and Gary Mills while a number of other players including Warren Barton, Rob Lee, John Beresford, Chris Waddle and David Speedie are also hoping to lace up their boots along with other players with top flight experience.

England manager Steve McClaren is also hoping to be at the ground on the day after a pledge by his agent Colin Gordon - who acted for Matt Gadbsy throughout his professional career. Championship referee Bryan Curzon will be the man in the middle on the day.

After the game, fans will get the chance to mix with the players and a question and answer session will take place featuring a number of the players on the day.

Gate prices will be £5 Adults and £3 concessions, of course all going towards the Matt Gadsby Memorial Fund. Kick off will be at 2pm, but the bar will be open fron 12 noon.
