Manchester City All Stars to face Soapstars at Hyde United
Former Blues will take on Well Pharmacy All Stars at Hyde United this weekend to raise money for the FANtastic campaign
Ian Brightwell will be one of many former Blues to play
The match, which kicks off at 1.30pm on Sunday 2nd August, will certainly be the highlight of the celebrations for Hyde’s 130th Anniversary.
The Manchester City squad will include former players such as Eric Nixon, Ian and David Brightwell, Les Chapman, Mike Sheron, Gary and David Bennett, Ally Pickering (who also featured for Hyde), Tony Barass, Scott Thomas, Simon Bower and Peter Barnes. The team will be managed by the one and only, Tommy Booth.
The match is in conjunction with the Mercian Regiment, with the Army display team also there on the day.
The Well Pharmacy All Stars, managed by former Hyde legend Tony Steenson, will feature many stars from Coronation Street, Hollyoaks, Emmerdale and Waterloo Road, including another Hyde legend in the form of George Oghani.
It promises to be a great afternoon at Ewen Fields, so get down to Ewen Fields and watch these two fantastic All Star teams go head to head!
Tickets are priced at £3 for adults, £2 for concessions and just £1 for under 16’s.
