Icons of Football 2017 It will be interesting to see how the footballers get when they\'re slightly out of their comfort zone

Darren captains the Rest of the World team of iconic footballers taking on Lee Westwood’s England team in a Ryder Cup style matchplay event to be played on 23rd to 25th June over The Brabazon course at The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield. 

Darren’s team includes footballing greats such as Gabriel Batistuta, Ryan Giggs, Peter Schmeichel and Dwight Yorke and playing for Lee’s team Steven Gerrard, Phil Jagielka, Alan Shearer and Teddy Sheringham. Both captains also have a wild card pick nearer the time of the event which promises to be full of excitement and some serious competition. There will be fourball, foursomes and singles matches and the stars will have the chance to win up to £1,000,000 for their chosen charities.

“Lee will want to win as much as I will," Clarke said. "It will be interesting to see how the footballers get when they're slightly out of their comfort zone.

"All 24 players on my team and Lee's team are football legends and to have the opportunity to spend some time with them will be a lot of fun”.

“Getting some old rivalries going again is going to be very interesting. There are plenty of places around here where you’re going to be found wanting if you’re not up to scratch!”.
