British drum and bass band Rudimental are hoping to be pitch perfect after it was announced they will be taking part in an annual charity football match in Norwich this weekend.

Three members of the band, known for hit singles including Feel The Love, featuring John Newman, and Waiting All Night, featuring Ella Eyre, will be joining a host of other celebrities at Norwich City's Carrow Road ground tomorrow for Jamie's Game.

Now in its fifth year, Jamie's Game is a celebrity football match organised by the Community Sports Foundation (CSF) in conjunction with Sellebrity Soccer.

The aim of the game is to raise as much money as possible to encourage disadvantaged and disabled individuals to participate in sport.

Since its inception the match has raised more than £200,000 for charity.
