CIRENCESTER TOWN manager Charlie Griffin is dusting off his boots again to take on Manchester United today (Sunday).

Griffin will line up for the Darren Perrin-managed Melksham Town Select XI which takes on the United Legends XI for the second year in a row in a charity match (kick-off 2pm) which will benefit the Teenage Cancer Trust.

A 2,000-strong crowd came to Melksham’s former ground in 2016 and organisers are hoping for a similar response at the new Oakfield Stadium.

The United Legends team is expected to be similar to last year’s side with the likes of Denis Irwin, Frank Stapleton, Sammy McIlroy, Lee Martin, Mike Duxbury, Clayton Blackmore, Russell Beardsmore, David May, Peter Davenport, Andy Ritchie, Arthur Albiston and Fraser Digby.

In addition to Griffin, Melksham could include Darrell Clarke (Bristol Rovers manager), Gary Owers (Sunderland/Bristol City and current Bath City manager), ‘Chalkie’ White (Swindon Town), Jason Drysdale (Newcastle United/Swindon Town), Paul ‘Oggie’ Hunt (Swindon Town/Forest Green Rovers) and Micky Bell (Bristol City).

There will be an auction packed full of great prizes, among them a signed Bournemouth shirt donated by Tyrone Mings, who is due to attend the fixture.

Tickets on the day cost £12 for adults, £9 for OAPS and £7 for children under 16.
