A charity game for Hemel Hempstead player Spencer McCall will take place at Vicarage Road on Tuesday evening.

The match, which will see former Hornets Lloyd Doyley, Will Hoskins and Darren Ward take to the field at Vicarage Road once again, will raise money for three cancer charities following McCall's own diagnosis of the disease earlier this year.

The Hemel player thought he had broken his leg and had suffered with pain for the best part of a year before he was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, not long after turning 24.

Months of testing revealed that what was originally diagnosed as a stress fracture turned out to be a tumour on his tibia.

A Just Giving page has been set up by his family alongside a statement that reads: "Spencer has had a passion for football since a young age, attending his first football game at the age of only three.

"He played for Valencia, had a professional scholarship with Stevenage FC and most recently, he is a valued player at the National League South Club, Hemel Hempstead Town FC.

"Receiving the original news he’d be out for the rest of the season with a stress fracture was devastating enough for Spencer, but nothing could’ve prepared him for the news he has bone cancer, and will most likely never be able to play the game he lives and breathes again.

"The reason behind this page and the fundraising events is to help Spencer and his family through this difficult time, offering both emotional and financial support, and also to raise money and awareness for Cancer Research UK."

The game, which kicks off at 7.30pm, will cost £5 for adults and £1 for children to attend.

All proceeds from the match will go to Cancer Research, Ewings Sarcoma and the Spencer McCall Crowdfunding Campaign.
