Last year's PNE charity game at Deepdale

The Deepdale Legends match on Sunday, April 30 (2pm), will raise money for Prostate Cancer UK, a charity Grayson does a great deal of work for.

Supporters can bid to play in the game in an auction on PNE’s official eBay site – bidding starts on Friday April 7 and runs until Sunday, April 16.

The fans team will play against a Grayson XI, made up of former North End players and showbiz celebrities.
