Latest celebrity confirmed for April's PTS Academy Stadium game

12 February 2019

Actor Tom Rosenthal (pictured above with his Dad, sports presenter JIm at last year's charity celebrity match) has joined EastEnders star Aaron Sidwell in signing up to this April's charity celebrity match here at the PTS Academy Stadium.

After the success of last April's Sellebrity Soccer match at the PTS Academy Stadium, Northampton Town are staging another celebrity charity match.

This game will take place on Sunday April 28th 2019 with the proceeds split between Archie's Fund and the club's own Community Trust.


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.
