Soccer AM & This is England stars ho head-to-head in charity football games
Celebrity Grimsby duo Lloyd Griffith and Tommy Turgoose will line-up against each other this August for a charity football game that will benefit two worthwhile causes.
Lloyd and Tommy head to the Linden Homes Club in Cleethorpes, home of Cleethorpes Town, on Sunday 5th August for the match.
They will be joined by a host of celebrity friends, as well as being joined by ex-Grimsby Town professionals.
The match will raise funds for St Andrew's Hospice in Grimsby and also Once Upon A Smile – a charity that provides support for bereaved families.
Lloyd will captain the St Andrew's Hospice All Star XI, with Tommy leading out the Once Upon A Smile Select XI.
An ambassador at the hospice since the turn of the year, Lloyd is looking forward to returning his hometown to help support one of the region's most well-known charities.
Lloyd said: 'Me and Tomo are delighted that we can make this game happen.
'We've both been playing in charity games for Once Upon A Smile for a number of years now and so it was a no-brainer to sort a game between them and St Andrew's Hospice.
'I've got some cracking players lined up to play against the already existing celebrity team and I know we'll be up against it.
'It'll be a great day bringing the community together, raising lots of money for two cracking charities, there'll be lots of great face.'
Tickets for the match are on sale now and cost £6 for adults and £2 for children. There is also a special family ticket priced at £12 for two adults and two children.
These are available from the hospice, the Linden Club, or online. The charity match will kick off at 1pm, with gates opening at 11am, accompanied by a range of family-friendly activities and fundraising events.
