SOAP stars will take on a squad of Pompey heroes in a charity football match.

The Superstar Sunday Celebrity Funday will take place on October 4 at Havant and Waterlooville Football Club.

Organiser Michael Briscoe, 24, of Cosham, said that while the actors could only play if filming schedules allowed, he hoped the likes of Emmerdale stars Joe Gill, Danny Miller and Anthony Quinlan, Eastenders’ Matt Lapinskasis, Waterloo Road’s Reece Douglas and Hollyoaks’ Nico Mirallegro would be there.

The other team will be made up of former Portsmouth FC players, including The Only Way is Essex star Tom Kilbey.

He said: ‘It’s something a little bit different and it’s going to be great. We’re hoping to raise a lot of money for a good cause and have a good time while doing it.’

Mr Briscoe said the match would fundraise for the charities Children with Cancer UK and Once Upon a Smile.
