TOTTENHAM Hotspur and Argentinean World Cup legend Osvaldo Ardiles will be at Kings Marsh Stadium on Saturday, April 25 for AFC Sudbury's last home game of the season against Marlow.

He will be the club's special guest as middle schools from Sudbury, Clare, Nayland and Gt. Cornard take part in the 4TH AFC Sudbury Annual Penalty Competition. The AFC Supporters will also be hoping to make this a day to remember as they hope to make their 'Yellow Bellow' the loudest noise in non-league football.

The supporters volume will be recorded as the players enter the pitch and the AFC Supporters' Club are giving away 100 free Air Horns.

AFC Sudbury, in association with match sponsors Gt Waldingfield Garages, are delighted that Ossie has accepted the club's invitation to be involved in what should be a fun packed afternoon for all the family. He will help referee a penalty competition for local middle school children and present the School representative a �250 Sports voucher (kindly donated by Gt Waldingfield Garages) to buy equipment for his or her school. Runners-up will receive �100 and �50 will awarded to the three remaining schools
