Henrik Larsson and a host of Celtic legends to play a charity match in Bray next month

You can expect this to sell out, so be quick.

Irish fans of Glasgow Celtic who thought they'd never get the chance to see Henrik Larsson play in the flesh may think again - he's coming to Bray next month.

Larsson, along with a number of Celtic legends including Stiliyan Petrov, will play a charity match against an 1888Fitness XI in aid of Ger Doolin.

Doolin is a close friend of Bray's first team coach Graham Kelly, and was the victim of an unprovoked attack last July which left him in a coma, with a fractured skull and three bleeeds on the brain.

The 40-year-old had been on a stag in the Co. Leitrim town of Carrick-on-Shannon on 17 July when the attack occurred.

As well as Larsson - Celtic's third top goalscorer of all time behind Bobby Lennox and Jimmy McGrory - former stars Tom Boyd, Alan Stubbs and Bulgarian midfielder Petrov will all take part at the Carlisle Grounds on 29 April.
