FORMER Boro stars have flown in from all over the planet for tomorrow (Friday) night's charity football match.

Goalkeeper Des Gallagher (shown above on Saturday) has travelled from Australia as members of the 1996 Conference winning team will once again don their boots to take part in a match versus an Arsenal Celebrity XI.

Other former Boro players who will be appearing include Steve Berry, who now lives in France, Gary Crawshaw, Mark Smith, Richard Wilmot and Stuart Beevor.

League stars Barry Hayles and Efe Sodje will be there but are unable to play due to injury.

Ticket prices are £10 for adults and £6 concessions (seats) and £8 for adults and £5 concessions (terracing). The match is kicking off at 7.45pm.

Boro have joined forces with the borough council to highlight the town's entry into Britain in Bloom 2006.
