SHEFFIELD United stars scored as they enjoyed a special Christmas celebration with patients and staff at St Luke’s Hospice.

The players, George Baldock, Michael Verrips, Phil Jagielka, Ali Johnson, Lisa Bailey and Matthew Prestridge were joined by United legends Carl Bradshaw and Tony Currie, representatives of the Sheffield United Community Foundation and United Vice President Tajinder Singh.

They toured the Little Common Lane hospice and chatted with patients and staff and posed for pictures.

“As ever, everybody had a really great time,” said St Luke’s Corporate Fundraising Manager Jack Kidder.

“This is a Christmas tradition that everybody looks forward to and we thank all our guests for making this such a memorable afternoon.”
