The third annual Xpression FM Charity football match is taking place on Sunday 23 March.

The match is being held on the Rubber Crumb at the University of Exeter Sports Park and will feature a team of pundits from the University’s radio station taking on a team of Student Guild Staff and Athletics Union Sports Team Members.

The event will raise money for the Adam Stansfield Foundation, a local charity set up in honour of the former Exeter City striker who tragically died of bowel cancer in 2010. Last year the event raised over £2,000 for the foundation and the organisers hope to improve on that figure in 2014.

The foundation aims to promote a healthy lifestyle for children across Devon, Herefordshire and Somerset by encouraging them to play sport from an early age.

As well as the football, there will also be a chance for spectators to get involved in a penalty shootout, cake sale and raffle with prizes including a meal at Lloyds restaurant and a pair of headphones from Jack Wills.

Dougie Wilson, Xpression FM Head of Sport, said: “The Charity Match is a fantastic occasion for everyone, whether you like your football or not. There are incredible prizes up for grabs in the raffle and delicious cakes to enjoy while the intense rivalry on the pitch unfolds! Do come along and enjoy the spectacle as we try to raise as much money as possible for The Adam Stansfield Foundation.”
