Arsenal’s ex-pros to play in Welwyn Garden City charity match

ARSENAL will be playing at a WGC leisure centre at the weekend.

Well, not the first team – but the Premier League club’s Ex-Pro and Celebrity XI.

The charity event at Gosling Sports Park is being held in association with Codicote FC – who play their home matches at the venue – and the Willow Foundation, the Old Hatfield-based charity co-founded by former Arsenal keeper Bob Wilson.

Kick-off on Sunday is at 2.30pm. Tickets cost �4 for adults and �1 for children.

All proceeds will be donated to the Willow Foundation.

The day is not just for football fans, though, as Gosling is hosting a family open day and barbecue as well.

Visitors will be able to try a range of sporting activities for free, such as tennis, skiing, trampolining and gymnastics.
