Robert Plant takes to the field in testimonial
Robert Plant will swap his microphone for football boots after bidding £900 to play in retired Wolves defender Jody Craddock's testimonial match next year. Plant has been a lifelong Wolves fan, bid for the chance to play in the match at a fundraising dinner in Craddock's honour. Defender Craddock called time on his career over the summer, and the fundraising meal was held in his honour. All proceeds will add to a total of more than £8,000 raised for Birmingham Children's Hospital, where Craddock's son Toby has been treated for leukaemia. The testimonial match will be held in May next year.
