and two guests in Micky Gray ( ex Sunderland & England) and Lee Hendrie ( ex Aston Villa).
Also the opportunity for 3 players to play for their beloved Manchester United. You need to submit your bid to Darren on 07855 742960.
There will be a shirt auction after the game where some of the profits will be donated to TEENAGE CANCER TRUST and Wiltshire Air Ambulance. Some truly incredible shirts up for auction. There will also be videos from the United players leading up to the game for people to see on our social media sites.
Before the game anyone who has purchased a match day ticket, will be able to attend a Q & A session with David May from 12 pm in The Sky Bar.
Darren Perrin commented, " It is fantastic and a real coup for the club that these players have agreed to come and play us again, to try and raise some much needed funds for the Club and also to support our 2 chosen charities. To see the likes of Wes Brown, Chris Eagles, Keith Gillespie and the special guests is amazing and we urge all the people in Wiltshire and especially Melksham to get your tickets asap.'
Russell Beardsmore commented, " Our former Manchester United players and two guests are looking forward to coming to Melksham Town FC again to play against a Melksham Town XI on Sunday 1st August. We played on 2 other occasions and were made very welcome by the club and were amazed by the incredible support that Melksham received. We have lost the 2 other games hence why a younger, fitter squad and we will be definitely looking to put the record straight on August 1st. We look forward to seeing you all after quite an horrific year for everyone. Stay safe and well.
