FORMER Wanderers striker Kevin Davies will return to the UniBol for Gethin Jones’ MND appeal.

Davies – who scored 85 goals for the Whites – will be in action on Sunday, November 14 (KO 1pm) as a Wanderers All Star side takes on Ian Evatt’s current first-team squad.

The match is taking place to raise funds for Gethin's mum, Karen, who is suffering from Motor Neurone Disease.

Davies is excited to pull on his boots again and is also aiming to recruit some of his old team-mates for the game.

“I had a message from Gethin and was more than happy to help, along with some of the old boys,” he told the club’s website.

“It’s a case of raising as much money as we can and also reading between the lines it seems some fans felt some of the players didn’t get a send-off at the time, so it will be great to get them all back together.

“It’s a good excuse to get fit again and from a player’s perspective it will be great to see everyone again. I’ve moved away from the area but it’s always nice to come back and see some familiar faces.

“All of my family is going to come up. The kids grew up around the club so it will be good for them to come back. To get back on the pitch again will be lovely and I’m sure it’s the same for all the other players.

“I’ve said it time and time again. The likes of (Ivan) Campo and Stelios have played at such a high level and won so many trophies and still have such a love for the club.”

The Jones family are aiming to raise funds to cover costs for treatment in the United States and research into the disease through the Darby Rimmer Foundation.

Tickets for the game are available to buy on the club website and are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for over-65s and under-18s.

“I am sure everyone will get behind it,” added Davies. “We all know where the club has been in the last two or three years and it seems like with Sharon (Brittan) and the manager that everyone is aligned and it feels like the club is getting back together with the fans and the reconnection seems there, which is great.

“The team is doing well and there’s a good feel around the place. I think the timing is right for everyone to come back.

“It will be a great occasion. We will try and put on a show but it’s all about raising money for Gethin and his mother. That’s what it’s all about.”

The club is also hosting a black-tie charity dinner at the Lion of Vienna suite from 7pm on Saturday, November 13.
