Blades hero Carl Bradshaw and Sheffield FC are getting together for a charity football match in aid of two worthy causes.

Bradshaw will put together a Blades Legends team for the game at Sheffield FC’s Coach and Horses ground, on Sunday, May 12.

They are taking on managers and assistants from Eckington Boys and Belles FCs, and are hoping to attract a capacity crowd, with admission just £1 for everyone.

All proceeds will go to two charities – Cardiac Risk in the Young and Cruse Bereavement Care.

The game marks the 30th anniversary of the north Derbyshire junior club.

Chairman Zaid Askwith said the club was very proud of it long history.

He said they wanted to use the landmark to aid the two worthy causes.

Mr Askwith said: “We’re very proud that we’ve been providing junior football opportunities in the area for so long.

“We’re very much a community club and wanted our celebration to help two causes that our very close to our hearts.

“We’re so grateful to Carl and Sheffield FC for everything they are doing to help our efforts.

“We hope local people will help us to raise as much money as possible for CRY and Cruse by coming along to Sheffield FC on May 12.

“I’m sure it will be an enjoyable afternoon for everyone involved.”

The game kicks-off at 4pm, with a junior festival of football taking place before.

Turnstiles will be open from 12pm.

Tickets are priced at £1 and can be bought now from Sheffield FC, both Eckington Business Centres, or reserved by emailing
