Two former top flight footballers are gearing up for a "Legends Match" in Shropshire this summer.

Liverpool old boy Phil Neal and former Manchester United man Arthur Albiston will bring a number of their old team-mates to Ludlow Town on August 3.

Bruce Grobbelaar, John Barnes and Ian Rush and United's Frank Stapleton have all been named as possible starters.

"We're looking forward to renewing old rivalries in Ludlow," Neal told BBC Radio Shropshire.

Ludlow Town are expecting a great turn out for the day - similar to last year when Manchester United turned up.

The club is hoping to boost funds too.

"This is a great opportunity for local businesses to sponsor the event and have their logos on the shirts of the legends we'll have playing at Ludlow," said Town's commercial manager, Mark Siveter.

Neal and Allbiston were on opposite sides in the 1977 FA Cup final, won by United.
