Win tickets to Joe Thompson's testimonial

The Crown Oil Arena will play host to a testimonial game for former Rochdale AFC player, Joe Thompson on Sunday 21 July.

Rochdale Online has two tickets to give away to one of our readers.

Thompson, a two-time cancer survivor, retired in February this year, at the age of 29, on the advice of doctors following the physical effects of intensive treatment.

The benefit game - Joe Thompson’s Rochdale XI v Celebrity XI – is being organised by Five Nine Agency, in partnership with Rochdale Football Club.

Some of the proceeds will be donated by Joe to The Christie Hospital, who ‘saved his life twice’ during his battles with cancer.

The Rochdale XI will include ex-Rochdale captain Gary Jones and Chris Dagnall with Fabrice Muamba (Bolton Wanderers), Mark Wright (The Only Way is Essex) and Joshua Ritchie (Love Island) playing for the Celeb XI.
