BURTON Albion manager Nigel Clough and ex-player Aaron Webster will be joining a host of well-known celebrities at a charity football event at the Pirelli Stadium.
Soap stars, TV favourites and pop artists are among the celebrities who will play a special challenge match at the home of Burton Albion on Sunday, April 29 – kick off 3pm.
The proceeds of the game will go to help support the adult and junior disability programmes delivered by Burton Albion’s charity arm, Burton Albion Community Trust.
Nigel Clough said: “I’m sure it will be a great family day out and I’m looking forward to seeing the celebrity teams play – I have been told there are lots of talented footballers among them.
“I’m also delighted that the match will help benefit the great work that our community trust is able to do.”
Aaron Webster said: “I have been asked to play as a guest on one of the teams and I’m excited about playing at the Pirelli Stadium again and hopefully one or two more ex-Brewers will be joining me on the pitch.”
Matt Hancock, BACT’s Head of Community, said: “I know it’s a busy time for the first team, so I want to thank Nigel Cough for taking time out to come and support the event. I also know Brewers supporters will be eager to see Aaron Webster play again, as he has always been a fans’ favourite.”
It promises to be a great afternoon out for all the family with a chance to see some of your favourite celebrities enjoying themselves whilst also supporting the work of BACT.
Kevin Cooper, from Sellebrity Soccer, said: “We are looking forward to bringing this exciting Celebrity Football Match to Burton Albion FC for the first time. This will be a family fun day with 34 celebrities/legends taking part. You can be sure of lots of goals and fun and at the same time the most important thing is raising money for Burton Albion Community Trust. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, April 29.”
