Chris Senior returns to Darlo for the Legends game!

Chris Senior, the striker who scored that unforgettable dramatic winner for Quakers in the 2011 FA Trophy final, has agreed to play in the Marathonbet #NonLeagueChallenge Legends game on Sunday 29th July.

Every Darlo fan will always remember the moment when the ball hit the back of the net against Mansfield that day, and now Chris has agreed to put his boots on again for the match against the MarathonBet #NonLeagueChallenge Legends -- along with plenty of other Darlo legends.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” he said. “My eyes lit up when I realised who else will be on the field. It will be great to see the Darlo fans again as well. It’s also a chance for my son to see me play football in the flesh!"

So, here’s an excuse to replay that famous Wembley moment!

Tickets are on sale now, price £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and children over the age of 5, under 5s are free. (Please note that we are expecting a big crowd, all under 5s will need a ticket even though they are free), A share of the gate receipts will go to a nominated charity.
