Leyton Orient confirmed the starting XI for Martin Ling’s London Legends this week and it included various high-profile names for the ‘Big Match, Big Cause’ event.

On Sunday, a match between Martin Ling’s London Legends and Errol McKellar’s Celebrity XI will take place at Brisbane Road (3pm kick-off).

The event is in aid of Prostate Cancer UK and East Hertfordshire Mind Network, two charities close to the heart of McKellar and Ling.

Tickets are available to buy from Leyton Orient’s website if you click here and they are priced at £15 for adults, £10 for concessions and £5 for three to 16-year-olds.

Some of the names in Ling’s London Legends team included current O’s head coach Justin Edinburgh, 2006 promotion heroes John Mackie, Matt Lockwood and Gary Alexander plus old favourites Dean Cox, Charlie Daniels and Kevin Lisbie.

Matty Joseph will also line up at right-back while ex-West Ham United midfielder Trevor Sinclair and George Boateng are set to form a partnership in the middle of the park while a sponsor will be in goal.

On the bench so far for Ling’s Legends are Scott McGleish, Danny Shittu, Danny Bailey and Aiden Palmer.

McKellar’s final Celebrity XI is yet to be announced, but tickets are selling fast and it is set to be a fantastic day for a poignant cause.
