FORMER York City favourites Andy McMillan, Jonathan Greening, Tony Canham, Darren Williams and Michael Ingham are all set to face Tadcaster Albion in a charity match next month.

New Brewers boss Curtis Woodhouse, who was on the Minstermen’s books as a schoolboy, is also expected to don his boots in the game, which will take place on Saturday, July 6 and hopes to raise funds for the Diamond Blackfan Anemia Charity and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The DBA Charity helps former City player Ben Rhodes’ son William, who suffers from the bone marrow disorder, while the game will also support the Cystic Fibrosis Trust in memory of Sonny Lang, who worked for Albion before passing away in February 2016.

York-born Rhodes, now 36, made one appearance for his home-town club, as an 81st-minute, 18-year-old substitute for Richard Cooper during a 3-1 Football League defeat at Darlington in December 2001.

Other ex-Bootham Crescent professionals who have agreed to play for the York City Past Players’ side include Steve Bowey, Chris Porter, Darren Kelly, Iain Dunn, Craig Farrell, Dave Merris, Lee Nogan, Jamie Reed, Marc Thompson, Michael Rankine, Paddy Atkinson, Dave Spofforth, Bryan Stewart, Anthony Lloyd, Jon Worsnop and Jimmy Crangle.

Ex-Leeds United trio Bobby Davison, Matt Heath and Jason Blunt, meanwhile, will be in the Tadcaster line-up.

The match will kick off at 2pm with the gates and bar opening at 12.30pm.

Admission is £10 for adults and £5 for children and OAPs.

The City Past Players’ Association are also hoping to play Manchester United Legends next year in aid of the same charities and MacMillan Cancer Support.

Sponsors are now being sought to assist the staging of that game and anybody interested should contact Mark on 07474 242332.
