Charity team The Kews will take on Yorkshire Athletic.

Darren said Rob is due to be at the match with his children who are due to be mascots at the game.

A previous charity match in August when The Kews played Rory's Rovers raised £8,000 for Rob and the MND Foundation.

Darren, from Wakefield, has helped to raise more than £70,000 over the last five years with his charity team called The Kews, named in memory of a friend who died of cancer.

Tickets cost £2 at gates.
