Ex-football legends and TV and music celebrities will come together at Bury Town FC on Sunday to take part in a charity football match to raise money for stillbirth and neonatal deaths.

Ipswich Town promotion winner Jermaine Wright was the latest name to be added to a star-studded line-up set to attract fans through the gates at Ram Meadow for the match being hosted by the Jude Brady Foundation, which open at 11.30am with a kick-off time of 1pm.

Other potential names which have been lined up (though subject to change) include Kieron Dyer, Craig Bellamy, Fabian Wilnis, Titus Bramble, Jason Dozzell and Simon Milton.

DJ Spoony, Nick Pickard (Hollyoaks), Leon The Lion (The Voice) are the non-football celebrities set to play a part.

The organisers, which include Stowmarket’s Lee Godfree, who has launched a matchday programme holder with Ipswich fans’ favourite Wilnis (Fab ProBags), have said there will be the opportunity to have photos and autographs with the stars, while a raffle and auction will help raise additional charity funds.

Tickets, which can be purchased in advance via www.eventbrite.co.uk, are £10 for adults and £5 for children, while a family ticket is £25 (two adults and up to four children).
