The Offside Trust | Celebrity Football Match

Danny Murphy will be a guest star in the Offside Trust's charity match

On Sunday 20th August, a host of celebrities and football legends, including Ralf Little, David Morrissey, Rowetta, Trevor Sinclair, Danny Murphy, Craig Hignett and Ian Harte will take part in the Offside Trust's first big fundraiser at Curzon Ashton Football Club.

  • Date: Sunday 20 August 2017
  • Location: Curzon Ashton FC, Manchester

The occasion which is being supported by the Professional Footballers' Association aims to raise funds for the Offside Trust.

Former footballer and PFA member Steve Walters said: “Six months ago, we made a life-changing decision to speak about the sexual abuse we suffered as children.

“We did this because we wanted to prevent any child from suffering the way we did. We’ve been overwhelmed by people’s desire to help us achieve that goal, as well as offer support to other survivors.”

Steve added: “This is a great opportunity for all our friends around the country to get involved: we need everyone to buy a ticket, donate a raffle prize, and publicise the event. And, of course, if any of our footballing heroes fancy dusting off their boots for a great cause, we’d love them to join us.”
