Stefano Eranio, Seth Johnson and Robin van der Laan are amongst the list of former Derby County stars that have been confirmed to play in the Sellebrity Soccer match on Sunday 7th October.

Nine ex-Rams players have been confirmed for the star-studded match at Pride Park Stadium in support of the Derby County Community Trust.

He will once again share the pitch with Johnson and van der Laan who became fan favourites during their time at Derby.

After being awarded the EFL Community Club of the Year Award in April 2018, the ten-year anniversary will also see the Trust host their first ever Derby 10K in April 2019, take their largest cohort on the seventh Rams in Kenya trip and make plans for new fundraising events including this celebrity match and a planned stadium sleep out at Pride Park Stadium.

All profits from the day will go directly to the Community Trust to help fund their extensive list of programmes ranging from Disability sessions, Active Recovery, Forever Active, Premier League Kicks and many more. To find out more about the Trust, click here.
