Lincoln City Former Players' Association will take on Bradford City FPA on Sunday 8 October to raise vital funds for several charities.

The fixture, which is the first of its kind between the two clubs, will commemorate the fire of 1985 at Valley Parade which engulfed the main stand and claimed the lives of 56 people including lifelong Imps Bill Stacey and Jim West. 

The match will take place at the LNER Stadium (2pm KO) with supporters now able to purchase tickets to watch their heroes, share with them their Lincoln City memories, and provide support for some great causes. 

Money from every ticket purchased will provide donations to the Lord Mayor of Bradford’s chosen charities, Lincoln Mayor’s chosen charities, Lincoln City Foundation, and the Bradford Burns Unit. 

Tickets are priced  at £10 for adults, £5 for children or £20 for a family ticket which will provide access for two adults and two children. 

Former City striker Gavin Gordon, chairman of City’s FPA, will be one of the former Imps retaking to the LNER Stadium pitch. He said: “It’s an event that has been in planning for a while now and it’s something that we wanted to do to help such wonderful causes.

“It’s the first time we’ve done something like this, and it provides a good opportunity for supporters of both teams to commemorate the memorial. We want the fans to be entertained, it’s for a good cause and hopefully we can raise some vital money.”
