A pompey Legends team will face a charity side, raising money to support people with disabilities.

The Blues team will take on volunteers from Petersfield charity FitzRoy.

The charity provides support to people with disabilities and learning difficulties so they do not feel isolated.

The match will kick off at 10.30am, at AFC Portchester’s Wicor Recreation ground, on Sunday, September 6.

After the game, there will be a pitch-side barbecue, face-painting, bouncy castle and a penalty shoot-out. There will also be a raffle, where the top prize will be a pair of signed gloves from Pompey’s former Premier League goalkeeper, Jamie Ashdown.

Money raised by the event will go towards FitzRoy’s rural skills project, which is in the Sustainability Centre in East Meon. The idea behind the project is to encourage everyone who visits the centre to learn, develop confidence, build friendships and gain skills in horticulture, woodworking and crafting.

Tickets for the match are £3 and free for children.
