A Yeovil Town Legends side will be travelling to the Bob Lucas Stadium later this month, as part of a Charity fundraiser. The game against Weymouth Legends will take place on Sunday 22nd July with a 2.00p.m. kick-off, and has been organised following the death of former striker Dave Platt, who played for both sides but passed away aged 55 after suffering from non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Two charities will benefit from the match, with St Margaretís Hospice having provided treatment and care for Dave during his later years. In addition the Purbeck Isle Memorial Fund has been set up in the wake of a disaster earlier this year that saw three Weymouth fishermen drown, after their boat sank in mid-May.
Weymouth's team will be managed by Stuart Morgan, and includes former Glovers midfielder Pete Conning, whilst the familiar face of Terry Cotton will be leading a Glovers side that includes many well known faces, including former player/coach/manager Steve Thompson and Glovers Commercial Manager Dave Linney as well as former Sherborne Town manager and Glovers striking legend Mickey Spencer.
Admission will be £3.00 for adults and £1.00 for under-16s. Team sheets can be purchased at £1.00 each.
