EX-ARSENAL players are due to appear in a celebrity charity football match on Sunday.

Former Gunners Perry Groves and Chris Whyte are expected to play alongside Royle Family star Ralph Little, and Ground Force presenter Tommy Walsh in a celebrity side.

The match will raise money for Arsenal charities, the Addenbrooke's Neuroscience Critical Care Unit, and the Herts Fire Service Benevolent Fund.

It will kick off at The Bury, Buntingford, at 3pm with a family open day beginning at 10am with a display of fire vehicles and fire safety equipment, two live bands, and other attractions.

Buntingford fire-fighter Tony Dent said: "We're hoping lots of people will come down to watch the match, cheer us on and help us raise as much money as possible."

Admission is £3 (adults) and £2 (children) or £8 (family).
