Footballing favourites from yester-year are set to grace the pitch once more for a special charity match this week.

The match will see some top talents line-up at Crown Meadow on Friday (March 3) as Legends II takes place between an Eastern Counties MG Legends team – managed by ex-Lowestoft Town player and manager Micky Chapman – and KPFC Legends.

Funds will be raised for the Legends charity – Prostate UK – as the eagerly-awaited clash kicks off at 7.30pm and features former favourites from Lowestoft Town, K&P and Eastern Counties League teams.

After the inaugural Legends match at Walmer Road last year was won 4-1 by the Eastern Counties Legends, the match is being organised once more by Mike Guymer. Mr Guymer said: “The east coast is doing its bit to help in the fight to find a cure for Prostate UK.”
