MORE than 25 legends from Stourbridge and West Bromwich Albion folklore will compete for the Jane Webb Memorial Trophy this Sunday (April 7) in support of Mary Stevens Hospice.

Back for its fourth instalment, the annual charity match has become something of a tradition for families and football fans and has already raised more than £50,000 for the Oldswinford hospice since its inception in 2016.

This year, the likes of Geoff Horsfield, Des Lyttle, Nigel Quashie and Bob Taylor will go toe-to-toe with some of the most famous names in Glassboys history, including Mark Bellingham, Lewis Solly and Adam Bastable.

There will also be a huge family fun day before the game including a bouncy castle, market stalls, food vans and a meet and greet with famous faces.

Prior to kick-off, families will also enjoy the spectacle of the Fundraising Energy Mascot Race which will see children's characters and famous mascots compete in an It's A Knockout style obstacle course on the pitch, sponsored by Fundraising Energy.

The day will also include a sporting memorabilia auction and a half-time presentation on the pitch for three local football teams who have supported the hospice in recent months.

The match, named in memory of Stourbridge hospice supporter Jane Webb who died in 2015, has been sponsored in full by Keltruck Scania, Prospect Coaches and GS Industries, which will ensure every penny raised will be directly used to support patient care at the Hagley Road hospice.

Jane's son Matt Webb, event co-founder, said: "To have some of the most iconic names in both clubs' history getting in touch and asking to be involved is just a wonderful feeling and will mean that we can promise our crowds yet another fantastic game of football.

"The fact that all of it makes care possible for a charity that was so close to mom's heart really is just the icing on the cake and we can't wait for Sunday.

"The lads are all well up for the game and we're confident we've got them figured out now - it's going to be fourth time lucky and a Glassboys victory, I'm sure."

Amanda Bowen, deputy head of fundraising at Mary Stevens Hospice, said: "The difference this game has made to our families and our care in the last three years simply can't be overemphasised and we absolutely love doing it every year.

"The memories we create with our supporters are special and we can assure everyone coming along on the day that they are in for an afternoon of comedy, chaos and some absolutely fantastic football."

Gates open at 1.30pm at Stourbridge Football Club's War Memorial Athletic Ground, with kick-off scheduled for 2.30pm.

Tickets are £5 for adults aged 16 and over and free for under 16s. They can either be bought on the day or booked in advance online at
