Former Stevenage FC player Mitchell Cole is being remembered in a benefit game being held at the club next Tuesday (May 7th).
Mitchell, who died last year from cardiomyopathy aged 27, played for the club between 2007 and 2010, scoring for them in the first competitive final at the new Wembley Stadium, his goal helping them lift the FA Trophy.
After retiring from football in 2011, Mitchell became an ambassador for the CMA, helping to raise awareness of cardiomyopathy and the charityâ€™s work. All proceeds from the match will go to the CMA.
A Stevenage XI will play a Mitchell Cole XI at the clubâ€™s ground at the Lamex Stadium, Broadhall Way, Stevenage, Hertfordshire SG2 8RH. Kick off is 7pm.
A whole host of former Stevenage players and team mates of Mitchell â€“ including Premier League and Football League players and a Scottish Premier League champion â€“ are due to play in the game. They include Wales international striker Steve Morison, former England winger Steve Guppy and Celtic striker Gary Hooper.
Tickets, Â£10 for adults and Â£5 for U18s, are available in advance from here or on the turnstiles on the night.
