Shayne Ward signs up for Bradley Lowery charity football game

Shayne Ward, who plays Aidan Connor in Coronation Street, has signed up to join a celebrity charity football match to celebrate the life of Bradley Lowery.

Young Sunderland supporter Bradley won the hearts of football fans around the world during his brave battle against neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer, before his sad passing in July aged six.

The football game, which takes place at Goodison Park on Sunday 3 September and kicks off at 3pm, will see Shayne and a host of celebrities lace up their boots for the match which will benefit the Bradley Lowery Foundation and Everton in the Community.

Tickets are priced at just £10 for adults and £5 for Under-16s.

The team managers for the celebrity fixture have been appointed and the ‘Bradley Lowery Celebrity Charity Match’ will see lifelong Evertonian Tony Bellew at the helm for the ‘Bradley’s Blues’, whilst ‘The Lowery Legends’ will be managed by TV star and business woman Katie Price. The team names have been personally selected by Bradley’s mum Gemma.

Heavyweight boxing star Tony ‘Bomber’ Bellew will be joined by singer-songwriter Olly Murs and Hollywood actor, Little Boy Blue star Stephen Graham, X-Factor winner turned Coronation Street star Shayne Ward and Steps star and boyhood Evertonian Lee Latchford-Evans.

Katie Price’s ‘The Lowery Legends’ team will see model and reality TV star Calum Best join F2 Freestyler Jeremy Lynch, TOWIE star James ‘Arg’ Argent, TV personality Dan Osborne and Union J’s Josh Cuthbert. More players for both Bradley’s Blues and The Lowery Legends will be announced over the coming weeks.

The charity game has been arranged in conjunction with the Lowery family and the Bradley Lowery Foundation and, with the assistance of celebrity football organiser Sellebrity Soccer, will see proceeds raised benefit the Bradley Lowery Foundation and Everton in the Community.

Tickets for the ‘Bradley Lowery Celebrity Charity Match’ can be purchased online at or over the phone on 0151 556 1878*. Alternatively, they can also be bought from Goodison Road ticket office or the Club’s city centre ticket facility in Everton Two.
