Players confirmed for Daniel Parslow Benefit Match

By Dan Simmonite | 7th September 2019

York City are delighted to confirm that the Daniel Parslow benefit game will take place on Wednesday 9th October at Bootham Crescent (7:30pm kick-off).

The game will be contested under the lights, for potentially the last time at Bootham, and will see a ‘2012 Wembley Twice’ team take on ‘Daniel Parslow’s York City Allstars’. Admission is ‘pay on the gate’ and prices are set as: Adult - £10, Senior - £5, Students - £5, and Under 18s - £5 (Disabled plus carer ticket - carer goes free).

Pre-paid tickets can now also be bought from the club’s Ticket Office on home matchdays.

Confirmed players so far for the Wembley side are Michael Ingham, David McGurk, Scott Kerr and Jason Walker. Furthermore, The Allstars team will feature Richard Cresswell, Martyn Woolford, Ben Purkiss and Neil Barrett.

Parslow spent 12 years with the Minstermen over two spells and was forced the retire from professional football in July due to a head injury. The former central defender is now on a mission to raise awareness for the charity Headway – which is an organisation working to improve life after brain injury.

“At the time it seemed innocuous, but I think it turned out to be a lot more serious than everybody thought,” explained Parslow.

“You can’t imagine what it is going to be like when you have to call time on your career - it hit home a bit the first game of this season but life goes on and I’m excited for what is around the corner.”

He added: “It was great to be granted the benefit year by the Football Club, the fans’ reaction was fantastic and I’m looking forward to sharing further memories and events with the people who have supported me along the way.”

More information including further participants will be released in the coming weeks and you can keep up to date on the Daniel Parslow Facebook and Twitter feeds.
