FOOTBALL legends will be lining up against town fund-raisers in memory of a Redditch boy.
Proceeds from the Team Lewis match this Sunday (September, 2) will be donated to Acorns, the charity which supported
Lewis O’Neill and his family through his battle with Krabbe Leukodystrophy.
Star guests include Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion player Geoff Horsfield, UEFA and FA Cup winner Micky Hazard and former Spurs and Rangers player Graham Roberts.
Jon McClure, frontman of indie band Reverend and the Makers, is also set to make an appearance to raise funds for Team Lewis.
Lewis’s dad Lee said: “We are so excited about so many stars coming down to Redditch and supporting us. The players we have playing for Team Lewis are true legends that have appeared on our television screens over the years and to see them in our town and playing in our shirt is just beyond belief.
“All we want is for the people of Redditch to come down and support us and to help us remember Lewis on what will be a very special day.
“We’d like to appeal to all Birmingham City fans from around the town to show their support and help us to have a bigger crowd than for our last game against Aston Villa.
“Birmingham City have been fantastic with us and we know they have amazing fans so it would be great to see as many of them as possible there.”
Admission for the match, which starts at 11am, is £5 for adults and £3 for under 16s. The day will also feature a memorabilia
