Pearce: will coach the British Army against Hodgson's FA Legends

Stuart Pearce will lead a British Army team against Roy Hodgson's FA Legends on Saturday, May 18 - and there are still tickets up for grabs.

The match, which is being contested to celebrate 125 years of football being played in the army, takes place at Reading's Madejski Stadium at 4pm, with seat prices set at £12 for adults, and £6 for over 65s and under 16s.

Sky Sports pundits Gary Neville, Matt Le Tissier, Chris Kamara and Paul Merson will be showcasing their skills, along with former Germany stars Jens Lehmann and Dietmar Hamann, and ex-Tottenham skipper Ledley King.

But the British Army boys also have plenty footballing talent, including Royal Signals soldier and former Everton academy payer Rob Lonorgan and lance corporal Gavin Greenfield, who has played for Ryman League side Maidstone United.

There will be a feast of pre-match entertainment, too, including a performance from the Red Devils Parachute Display Team, so make sure you grab your place while you can!

Bookings can be made by calling the Reading Football Club ticket office on 0844 249 1871, by e-mail at, online at or in person at the Madejski Stadium.
