A TEAM of footballers with mental health needs will be taking on a team of soccer stars at the Galpharm Stadium.
The match takes place during half time of the Town v Swindon League I clash on Saturday.
Calderdale FC, whose players all suffer from severe mental health issues, will take part in a special exhibition match against Huddersfield Legends, including Andy Booth, Iain Dunn, Darren Bullock and Wayne Allison.
All players who take part in the game will also have the opportunity to meet the current Huddersfield Town squad. They will also get to watch the match between Town and Swindon and experience the atmosphere of a professional football game.
Day service worker Julian Moses, who works with the Calderdale Inclusion Support Service, said: “This is an ideal opportunity to raise awareness of mental health issues, reduce stigma and promote wellbeing through exercise at the same time as giving the team a once in a lifetime opportunity.
“Everyone is really looking forward to the match and the chance to show off their fancy footwork!”
It is part of the Good Mood Football League, which consists of nine teams that train on a weekly basis, with official league matches taking place quarterly.
