Bean to manage Legends in Bramall Lane charity game

Quote

Hollywood actor Sean Bean will be returning to the Bramall Lane dugout when he takes charge of a team of Sheffield United legends, as they take on a Fulham All Stars side including Jimmy Bullard and TV star Jack Whitehall in a charity football match at Bramall Lane.


 Lifelong Blades fan Bean, who took penalties in front of the Kop in 1996 during production of the British film When Saturday Comes, will take charge of a Sheffield United Legends team featuring several players from the Blades' Premier League promotion-winning squad of the 2005/06 season.


 The charity game is expected to see former boxing world champion, Joe Calzaghe, line up alongside former Fulham players Bullard, Rufus Brevett, Sean Davis, Kit Symons, soap star Chris Fountain, Gogglebox celebrity George Gilbey and 'The Wanted' singer Tom Parker, also turning out for the Fulham All Stars. Former Blade and Fulham star Paul Peschisolido is planning on playing 45 minutess for each side.


 Notable former Blades players expected to take part will be former skipper Chris Morgan, Derek 'Del' Geary, Brian Deane, Tony Agana, Craig Short, Michael Brown, Carl Asaba, Alan Quinn, Rob Kozluk, Alan Wright, Jon Harley, Bruce Dyer, Leigh Bromby, Richard Cresswell, Michael Tonge, Wayne Quinn, Jack Lester and another Blades former captain in David Holdsworth, with many more former players currently checking their schedules to see if they can play in the eagerly-anticipated game.


 Former World Cup Final referee, Howard Webb, will take charge of the game.


 Blades Legends Manager and Lord of the Rings star, Sean Bean, who starred as a United player in When Saturday Comes, said: "I may even reprise my role as Jimmy Muir!


"Seriously, it will be wonderful to be managing such great United Legends, and for good causes. It'll be great to be a part of what is sure to be a very special occasion.


 "I've supported Sheffield United for my whole life, and when I was offered the chance to don the Blades kit and manage from the Bramall Lane dugout, it was something I couldn't turn down."


 The game, sponsored by Redtooth and Maggie Mays Bar, will take place on Sunday 22 May at Bramall Lane, kick off at 1pm, with tickets now on sale from the Bramall Lane box office, over the telephone 0114 2537 200 (option 1) or online on http://www.sufc.talent-sport.co.uk


 The match is being held in aid of the Steelphalt Blades Academy, the Blades' Former Players Association, and Hallam FM's Cash for Kids charity, alongside the Fulham Foundation charity. Tickets are priced at only £7 for adults and £3 for concessions.


A limited numbers of Players' Lounge VIP tickets, with access to the Players' Lounge to meet Sean Bean and some of the players and celebrities after the game, are available at £10 for adults and £5 for under-16s and these can also be purchased from the Box Office, or by calling 0114 253 7200 (Option 1). 


 Dave McCarthy, Operations Director at Sheffield United, said: "This game is sure to be entertaining for the whole family. "It'll be fantastic to welcome back some Blades heroes, including some from the 2005/06 season, when the Club was promoted to the Premier League, and of course Fulham's Celebrity filled All Stars team.


 "We're also grateful to Sean Bean for agreeing to manage the Blades team, and I'm sure it's an experience which he, the players and the fans will not forget."

Saturday finally comes for actor Sean Bean as he steps into Bramall Lane dugout for charity match



Quote

Sean Bean could reprise his silver screen role as Sheffield United player Jimmy Muir when he returns to Bramall Lane for a charity match.

Bean, a lifelong Blade, will manage a United legends team featuring members of the 2005/6 Premier League promotion-winning squad, as they take on a Fulham All Stars side on May 22.

“I may even reprise my role as Jimmy Muir,” he said.



“Seriously, it will be wonderful to be managing such great United Legends, and for good causes. It’ll be great to be a part of what is sure to be a very special occasion.

Pesch poised for Lane return

Quote
Former Blades striker Paul Peschisolido is preparing to feature at Bramall Lane in a special fixture later this month.


 The Canadian, who scored 23 times in Neil Warnock's reign as manager, was a major feature of the 'Triple Assault' 2002-03 campaign.


 He is also a former Fulham player and is set to play for both sides as a Blades Legends team take on a Fulham All Stars XI at Bramall Lane on Sunday 22nd May, kicking off at 1pm.


 Hollywood actor and Blades fan Sean Bean will manage a United team that will feature the likes of Chris Morgan and Brian Deane, whilst the Fulham line up will include Jimmy Bullard, as well as boxer Joe Calzaghe and comedian Jack Whitehall.


 Peschisolido, however, is set to be one of the star attractions and he has been reliving his Blades memories ahead of the game.

Sean Bean takes part in charity football match for ‘disabled and disadvantaged children’

Quote
An upcoming star-studded charity football match involving Sheffield actor Sean Bean will help support ‘disabled and disadvantaged children’ throughout South Yorkshire.

Sean Bean, who is best known for starring in Game of Thrones, will manage a United Legends team, who’ll be playing against Fulham All-Stars on Sunday.

Katie Parsons, Charity Executive for Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids – one of the charities benefitting from the game – said: “We help to support disabled and disadvantaged children throughout all of South Yorkshire. The money raised will go through to the next grant round. With some of the money we can then buy medical equipment for children [in the county].”

Other local charities that will benefit from the match are the Steelphalt Blades Academy and the Blades’ Former Players Association.
 
As we previously reported, tickets sales are doing well; and Dave McCarthy, Operations Director at Sheffield United, has said that while they don’t have a fundraising target “[we] hope after costs we can make useful donations to all the charities.”

Sheffield charities are not the only ones benefitting, as Fulham’s Foundation will hope that the match can help them with their causes. The charity has been running for over 20 years and provides education and employment programmes to their community.

Steven Day, Chief Executive of the Foundation, said: “We are looking forward to the match at Bramall Lane. There are a number of great causes that will benefit from proceeds and we are sure that the players will put on a great show for fans attending the match.”

The match kicks off at Bramall Lane at 1pm on Sunday 22 May.
