Tomorrow's charity football match for the Bradley Lowery Foundation will be exclusively streamed live on the 5 News Facebook Page.

To be held at Goodison Park, the friendly match will benefit the foundation that was set up in the Sunderland fan's name to raise funding for his treatment. It will see Bradley's Blues, managed by former Everton player and Sunderland Manager Peter Reid WBC take on The Lowery Legends, managed by TV personality and reality star Katie Price and assisted by former Liverpool manager Roy Evans.

Over the past year, the footballing community resoundingly rallied to support Bradley and his family during his illness. During that time, Bradley won the Premier League's December Goal of the Month competition, met England Manager Gareth Southgate at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards, and became the mascot for Sunderland AFC, the team he supported. Bradley sadly passed away in July.

The teams will be made up of a number of former Everton and Sunderland players. Confirmed names includePeter Beardsley, Alan Stubbs, Alex Rae, Micky Gray, Tony Hibbert and others, who will all be turning out to honour and celebrate the life of Bradley Lowery.

Joining the ex-players is a host of celebrities, such as singersOlly Murs, Josh Cuthbert and Lee Latchford-Evans, as well as actor Stephen Graham,Jeremy Lynch of the F2 Freestylers, TOWIE star Dan Osborne, TV personalities Adam Woodyatt and Calum Best amongst others.

Commentary for 5 News will be provided by Darren Griffiths and former Everton midfielder Leon Osman.

Supporters attending the Bradley Lowery Celebrity Charity Match at Goodison Park on Sunday are being advised to allow extra time to make their journey to the game. 

Due to strike action by rail workers, Merseyrail will be offering a skeleton service on Sunday with no trains operating during the middle of the day (11am - 1:30pm from Liverpool Central). Merseyrail have confirmed that no trains will be calling at Sandhills Station throughout Sunday and supporters are advised to use the Ormskirk - Liverpool / Liverpool - Ormskirk line and alight at Kirkdale Station for Goodison Park. 

For more information on weekend's strike, train services and a revised timetable please click here.

Supporters making the journey to the match by bus or car are advised to allow extra travel time as planned roadworks may cause delays on approach to Goodison Park. Roadworks on County Road/Breeze Lane/Rice Lane roundabout will see lane restrictions in place meaning the duel carriageway on both sides will be reduced to single lane traffic. 

While train users will be most directly impacted, the whole transport network is expected to be busier as people find other ways to travel.
