Kevin Bird set to star in ninth annual charity game

10 September 2014

Mansfield Town legend Kevin Bird will be joined by other former Stags’ stars to play in a match in aid of childrens and cancer charities later this month.

Bird, a cult-here at the Stags, will be joined by ex-players Jonathan D’Laryea, Kevin Randall, Andy Beasley and Dave Caldwell .

The ex-Mansfield players have racked up over 850 appearances between them for the Stags, and now fans have the chance to see them in action once more on Sunday 28 September 2014, (3pm kick off)

The game is the ninth annual game since Jamie Walker’s dad, Phil, set up the event after his son was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Jamie underwent cancer treatment for a year and was then given the all-clear and has been in remission for eight years.

The annual match, which will be held this year at the Autoworld Arena, home of Matlock Town FC, has raised over £100,000 since the first game in 2005.

Kevin Bird, who made over 370 appearances for the Stags, is the stand-out name in the ex-players’ side which will face a ‘TV soap-star charity XI’ on Sunday 28 September (3pm).

All proceeds from the game will go to the ‘Once upon a Smile’ charity and the Kings Mill Hospital cancer ward that still looks after Jamie.

Tickets are priced at £12 for a family ticket (two adults and two children), adults £5 and children, seniors and students are all priced at £3.

Mansfield Town Football Club is proud to promote this event and the charities involved.
