Former Halifax Town players Darren Heyes and Mick Midwood are also involved.

Andys Man Club FC is made up off members from the clubs around the country.

Anthony Probets from the team said the idea of forming a team took off after they played their first game and members wanted to carry it on.

John Daly from AFA based in Nottingham said: "The organiser of the Andysmanclub team got in touch before Christmas as he wanted to do a match with our AFA team.

"Our team consists of fan players, but as and where we can, we have ex-pros and celebrity players that play for us too."

Alongside the match there will be family entertainment, stalls and a raffle.

Entry is £2 and all the money raised will be split between the two charities.
