Town legends come together for Alzheimer’s Society

10 August 2023

A bumper squad of Cheltenham Town legends will come together this weekend to take on a team of former Hereford United fan favourites.

The charity match at Edgar Street is the brainchild of former striker Steve Guinan, who played for both clubs during his career.

Some of the finest players to ever pull on the red and white shirt will once again take to the pitch with all the proceeds going towards the Alzheimer’s Society, an organisation that tackles the biggest challenges facing people living with dementia.

"It's a fantastic charity with so many links to football," said Guinan, who scored the winner against Grimsby Town in the 2006 play-off final, securing promotion to League One under John Ward.

"There are previous players with heading dementia and links to Alzheimer’s so I'm trying to do as much as I can through a number of events this year, and this is just one of them.

"Please, please, please come and support us. Not only will there be some fantastic players on show, I have some fantastic memorabilia including a signed Jack Grealish England shirt, a signed Harry Kane Spurs shirt and squad signed shirts from Chelsea, West Ham United and Everton.

"So please spread the word far and wide because the higher the attendance, the more money we will raise."
