Celebrities including TOWIE's James Argent and former Premier League stars will be playing football to raise money two charities.

Former policeman Bob Watson dedicated his life to coaching young footballers in the area until he died from cancer in 2012.

In his memory friends and family arranged a celebrity football match that year to raise money for charity and the event was such a success that a follow-up is being held this weekend.

Players including The Only Way is Essex stars James Argent and Jamie Reed, Eastenders' Mo George and former footballers Darren Byfield and Neil Shipperley will line up against a team made up of Mr Watson's friends and family.

The event, organised by a team including Mr Watson's son Robert, will also feature pre-match entertainment from X-Factor singer Shelly Smith who will also be appearing at a post-event party.
