Play with the likes of Martin O'Connor and Dean Keates (above)...

We are offering ONE Saddlers supporter the unique opportunity to play for a Walsall Legends team in next month’s inaugural Margot Martini Cup!

A star-studded Saddlers side, featuring the likes of Martin O’Connor and Chris Pead, are to take on Wednesbury Athletic at Chasetown’s Scholar’s Ground on Saturday, 7th May (kick-off 3.00pm).

The charity match will be in aid of Margot Martini, who sadly passed away, aged two, after suffering from extremely rare dual lineage Leukaemia complications.

To be in with a chance of playing for the Walsall Legends team, all you need to do is donate £10 to the charity Just Giving Page here

Please leave your name and email address when making a donation. The winner will be selected at random by Walsall head coach Jon Whitney at the Fleetwood match on Monday, 2nd May.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity!

Today we can confirm that former fans’ favourites Ian Roper and Dean Keates will be playing for the Walsall Legends team!

The full list of ex-Saddlers stars confirmed are: Ian Roper, Dean Keates, Martin O’Connor, Craig Pead, Mark Wright, Karl Hawley, Sean Geddes and Kris Taylor. Chris Marsh and Stuart Ryder will be the management duo.

On the day there will also be a raffle and a pre-match ball striking competition on the pitch - so make sure you come down for what promises to be a fun family day out!

Supporters who wish to attend the game can purchase tickets on the gate for £4 for adults and £2 for children, with children under six gaining entry for free.

Proceeds raised on the day will go towards the Team Margot foundation.
