Radiohead and Portishead members to play as Heads United in charity football match

Geoff Barrow and Philip Selway will team up at the Football & Food Festival in Newbury on April 25

Members of Radiohead and Portishead are set to team up for an upcoming charity football match.

Portishead musician Geoff Barrow has put a team together with Radiohead drummer Philip Selway called ‘Heads United’. They’ve also set up a Just Giving page to raise money for the Mary Hare Foundation, a charity for deaf children.

The pair will represent their side at the Mary Hare Football & Food Festival in Newbury on April 25. Funds will go towards the Mary Hare School. Find out more information at the charity’s official website.

Earlier this week, Jake Bugg launched a charity football tournament with the aim of providing musical instruments to students at schools struggling financially. Football Rocks will feature 10 teams competing at Notts County ground Meadow Lane on May 16 and will benefit both Bugg’s own Robin Hoody Foundation and the British Heart Foundation.

The Enemy, Saint Raymond, Reverend And The Makers and Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green will all compete.

Bugg said: “I love football and the lads and I have a game wherever we can when on tour. Growing up watching Notts County play at Meadow Lane with my Grandad I can’t wait to play there with my mates in front of a good crowd and raise some money for such great causes.”
