Hooper was a former team-mate of Cole, who died in December last year aged 27, at both Southend and Grays Athletic.

Former Stevenage players Steve Morison, Charlie Griffin, Lawrie Wilson, Steve Guppy, Michael Bostwick, David Bridges and Peter Vincenti are also taking part, along with Mark Creighton, Damian Batt, Harry Worley and Jack Midson, all of whom were team-mates of Cole at Oxford.

The match, between a Stevenage XI and a Mitchell Cole XI, will take place at Broadhall Way with a 7pm kick-off.

Cole made 120 appearances for Boro between 2007 and 2010 before a heart condition forced him to retire from the game.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
