Benefit match for Wallace

February 5th, 2004

Southampton have announced a benefit match for former England striker Danny Wallace, who has multiple sclerosis.

Wallace, who scored on his only international appearance against Egypt in 1986, became Southampton`s youngest-ever player as a 16-year-old when he made his debut at Manchester United, who he later joined for £1.2million in 1989.

He won the FA Cup and European Cup Winners` Cup in his time at Old Trafford but was struck down by multiple sclerosis after his retirement.

A Southampton XI will meet an all-star side in the match at St Mary`s Stadium on May 17.
