The star players will take to the field at 2pm at the home of King's Lynn Town, The Walks, thanks to fundraiser Jamie Wadlow.

Mr Wadlow planned the match as some of his family members have been diagnosed with the condition, previously he has held charity games for Save the Children, at Millwall and Peterborough United.

Celebs FC will take on Mr Wadlow's team, Moulton Seas End, who will kick-off the fundraising with a £500 donation.
