Ethan Ebanks-Landell is the latest signing for the Blades team that will compete against the Yorkshire County Cricket at a special event held at Bramall Lane later this month and offer fans the opportunity to get up close and personal with several sporting personalities on the night.
Famous names from Sheffield United and star players from Yorkshire Cricket will meet in a unique sporting clash in aid of United's Former Players Association and Tykes' skipper Andrew Gale's benefit year.
A 'Question of Sport' style football and cricket quiz, hosted by Look North presenter Harry Gration, will feature Gale and Yorkshire playing colleagues Tim Bresnan, Richard Pyrah and Steve Patterson, along with Jack Leaning and Jared Warner taking on Blades boss Chris Wilder, former defensive star Tony Kenworthy, United captain Billy Sharp and current midfielder Chris Basham, in addition to fans favourite Ebanks-Landell and United's greatest ever player Tony Currie.
The event will take place in the TC10 Lounge and International Bar at Bramall Lane on Thursday 20th October (7pm for a 7.45 start).
Andrew Gale said: "I'm really looking forward to the evening. As a big football fan it's great that Sheffield United are helping me out in my benefit year. We haven't got the brains of Britain in our team but hopefully we can get one over on the footballers!"
Dave McCarthy, Sheffield United Operations Director, said: "It promises to be a great night for two great causes - Galey's benefit and also our Former Players Association. There will be a superbly produced question and answer session on stage, an audience led Q&A with all the players, an auction and raffle, plus an opportunity to meet and mingle with the players from both teams in the bar after the quiz."
