Star studded Saddlers raising money for Margot Martini foundation...

WALSALL Legends have named their matchday squad for Saturday's inaugural Margot Martini Cup game against Wednesbury Athletic (3.00pm kickoff at Chasetown).

Fans favourite Chris Marsh will manage the Saddlers team, ably assisted by former Walsall defender Stuart Ryder.

Full Squad: Jimmy Walker, Craig Pead, Ian Roper, Dale Moon, Mark Taylor, Sean Geddes, Wayne Thomas, Darren Wrack, Kris Taylor, Martin O'Connor, Dean Keates, Brian Palgrave, John Hodge, Martin Butler, Darren Byfield, George Bowerman,
The side will be captained by Martin O’Connor.

Chasetown’s Scholar’s Ground will host the game on Saturday (3pm kickoff) in aid of two year old Margot Martini who sadly passed away after suffering from extremely rare dual lineage Leukaemia complications.

Supporters can purchase tickets on the gate for £4 for adults and £2 for children with under 6’s gaining entry for free.

There's a marquee and licensed bar for the event so supporters can spent the day in the sun, watching their Walsall heroes with a drink in hand!

There will also be a raffle taking place in the afternoon to raise further proceeds.

Money raised on the day will go towards the Team Margot foundation in what will be a day to celebrate Margot’s short but inspirational life.
