EastEnders star Danny Dyer has become the latest celebrity to sign up to play in April's charity celebrity match here at the PTS Academy Stadium.
Dyer has joined fellow actors Tom Rosenthal and Aaron Sidwell in signing up for the game on Sunday April 28th 2019 with the proceeds split between Archie's Fund and the club's own Community Trust.
The game is following the success of last April's Sellebrity Soccer match at the PTS Academy Stadium, which saw the likes of Alan Carr, Katie Price, Kerry Katona and Calum Best help raise funds for local charity Niamh's Next Step.
This year's nominated charities are listed below:
Cobblers fan Archie, who has Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type II, has lost strength in his muscles since birth and as a result requires the use of an electric wheelchair. He is a very inspirational little boy, he never complains, and despite the huge battles he faces he is always fighting with a smile on his face.
SMA is a life-shortening condition where the motor nerve cells in the spinal chord become diseased, which causes a decline in physical strength. As a result, walking and eating become difficult and a simple chest infection could be fatal.
Although there is medication abroad available to treat Archie’s disease, overseas one injection of the drug Spinraza would cost his family about £75,000 every four months for the rest of his life. Archie’s friends and family are campaigning for this drug to be made available on the NHS.
