Nottingham rock star Jake Bugg has set up a football tournament which takes places this Saturday at Meadow Lane to raise money for charity.

Football RocksThe 21-year-old, whose hits include Country Song, Lightning Bolt and A Song About Love, will be joined by fellow Notts County fan Saint Raymond, The Enemy, Reverend And The Makers, Blossoms and Bugg’s pals The Swiines.

The tournament will feature eight teams, comprising members of more than 16 bands as well as a number of professional footballers from the club, will compete at Meadow Lane during the day for the right to play in the final and the chance to discover which band is best at footy.

“I love football and the lads and I have a game wherever we can when on tour,” explained Jake Bugg. “Growing up watching Notts County play at Meadow Lane with my Grandad I can’t wait to play there with my mates in front of a good crowd and raise some money for such great causes.

“The team are organising a really great day and the atmosphere will be brilliant for all ages with plenty of surprise visits during the day, everyone’s being so generous with their time.”

The tournament will raise money for the singer’s own Robin Hoodie Foundation, which aims to provide musical instruments to schools who are struggling financially, as well as the British Heart Foundation.

Gates open at 10:30am on Saturday, with the action kicking off at 11am and will culminate in the final match at 5pm. Tickets are only £10 plus booking fee for adults with children (under-7s purchased with an adult ticket) only £1.
