A SIDE consisting of Arsenal footballing legends and celebrities is coming to Chard this weekend, and here is everything you need to know.

The clash will take place on August 11 at the home of Chard Town FC.

Adults tickets include a free souvenir programme on the day.

Can I still get tickets?

Unfortunately not. Tickets went on sale in February and all 1,000 sold out in just 60 hours. 

You will not be able to pay on the gate.

Who is in the Arsenal side?

While the potential team sheet includes comedian Russell Howard, actor Ralph Little, singer Tony Hadley and Ground Force’s Tommy Walsh - no one is confirmed until the day of the game.

Former Arsenal forward Omer Riza and ex-Gunners winger Perry Groves could also be taking part, while match organiser Lee Hutchings said he was working hard to try and bring his hero Ian Wright to South Somerset.

However, there is no confirmation on any of the players for the Arsenal side, and the Arsenal team state that no one is confirmed until the day.

Who are the Arsenal XI playing against?

The home side is representing Single Yellow Rose, and will be captained by Lee Hutchings.

The team will feature Chard players and some of the charity’s local supporters, and the squad has already had two warm up games to prepare for this weekend.

Funds raised will be split between the Arsenal FC Charity and Single Yellow Rose.

Single Yellow Rose was a charity set up by Lee and Daisy Hutchings after their daughter Belle was stillborn.

This is just the latest in a long list of fundraisers carried out by the group.

Extra information

The gates will open at 10.30pm with entertainment running from 11am until 1.45pm.

Kick off is then set for 2pm.

The football club have requested that everyone bring cash as the bar is cash only.

Please have tickets ready at the gate on your phone or printed out. They were sent via email when purchased - they will be exchanged for wrist bands on the gate.
