It will be a case of past against the future in Long Sutton later this month when the football club holds a charity match.

Former Magpies players will be up against a Sutton under-20s team at their London Road ground on Saturday, May 24.

Kick-off is 2pm and club officials are hoping many of the spectators will stay around to watch the Champions League final in the club house later in the day.

Among the Sutton stars of the past will be strikers Jerry Lowery and Michael Wayman, keeper Cymon Day, Nigel Howard, Gary Turner and Paul Preston.

Wayman will be up against his son Matthew, who also plays up front.

There will be a raffle and collection on the day and the players will also make a contribution, with all money raised going to the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.

Jeremy King, who is organising the veterans team, said: “It should be a great day.

“A lot of businesses in the town have supported us over the years and we wanted to do something to help others for a change.”
