Football fans will be able to see some stars of the past in action in a charity match this weekend.

Former Sheffield Wednesday stars Julian Watts, Mark Smith and Matt Hamshaw are among those set to turn out at Sheffield FC’s Coach & Horses ground in Dronfield on Sunday, alongside ex-Sheffield United favourites Paul Beesley, Rob Kozuk and Steve Charles. 
The match, which is in aid of Academy Africa, will see an All-Stars XI take on a team of Chesterfield legends featuring David Reeves, Jon Howard, Tony Lormor and Jamie Hewitt. Kick-off is at 2pm and admission is £5 (adults) and £1 (juniors).
Academy Africa is a UK-based charity which sees coaches sharing their skills and knowledge with professional and non-professional teams in Uganda, as well as providing football equipment. 
One of the Academy Africa coaches, Ashley Foyle, said: “We’re going out to Jinja in Uganda for 12 days later this month. We’ll be visiting visiting schools and villages and going to a new centre to put on a mini course for coaches, helping them to put sessions on.”
Any donations of kit or equipment would be welcomed by the charity. Please contact if you are able to help. For more information about the charity, visit
