Legends from the Saints, Cobblers and Steelbacks will be taking over Sixfields on Sunday, April 12th, 2015, for a charity game that organisers hope will become a regular and popular fixture on Northampton’s sporting calendar.


Former Saint, England international and British and Irish Lions tourist Ian Hunter - also now a regular voice in BBC Radio Northampton’s rugby coverage - is the latest player to agree to take part in the game, following in the footsteps of Tom Smith, Harvey Thorneycroft, Martin Bayfield and Matt Dawson.


“I knew Leon for a very long time and it was a no brainer when I was asked if I wanted to be involved in the game,” Hunter said. “As former players, it’s good to be able to give something back and support the Leon Barwell Foundation. It’s a fantastic charity and hopefully the game will raise awareness and a sizeable amount of money for the cause.


“I’m looking forward to the match but I’m quite nervous! I need to get a little bit fitter, but it will be good to see some old faces and it should be a really fun day within the context of what it is.”


Entry costs £10 (adults, senior, disabled) or £4 (Under-18s, disabled junior), with Under-7s and disabled carers able to watch for FREE.


Proceeds will go towards supporting the Leon Barwell Foundation, which gives families where a parent is suffering from cancer the opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime.
