The event will honour the memory of Metropolitan Police child protection officer, Bob Watson, who recently lost his battle against cancer.

The match will take place on Saturday, 21st July at 12pm at Imber Court, Metropolitan Police Sports Club, in Surrey, followed by a dinner dance and auction in the evening. Donations have been received from footballers David Beckham, Lionel Messi (Barcelona FC), Jamie Carragher (EX Liverpool FC), Ronaldinho (Mineiro), Scott Parker (Tottenham Hotspur), Charlton FC and Millwall FC.

The team of celebrities will be putting their reputations on the line against ‘The Select 11’ to raise funds for Cancer Research UK and Onelife UK.

Money raised by the event will help Cancer Research UK continue its life-saving work and support Onelife UK, a London-based charity, provide essential life skills to vulnerable young people and help them realise their potential to make a successful transition to adulthood through DJ/music and film production.

Tamer is not taking this game lightly, using his competitive spirit to select only the fittest celebs with the skills to take on ‘The Select 11’ Surrey local legends.

Actor, Hassan said: “I’m carefully choosing only the fittest celebs; each and every one of them has been put through their paces to make sure they are fit to wear the shirt. We promise to bring an entertaining game on the day.”

The Hollywood actor’s team includes sporting celebrities Danny Dyer, Calum Best, Jeff Brazier, Joey Essex, Kirk Norcross, Andy Ansah, Gavin Ramjaun and more. These stars will be on their best behaviour as they step onto Met Police ground next month.

Hassan said: “Bob Watson’s story really touched my heart; he had a heart for young people, bringing them together to enjoy football. My team of celebrities will do our best to raise money for Cancer Research UK and Onelife UK. I love football and this is a fun way to raise money. Cancer is a dreadful disease and so many people I know have lost someone to cancer. This is me doing my bit for a cause I care passionately about.”
