A four-year-old football fan who is battling a rare form of liver cancer is to lead out two East Lancashire teams tomorrow.

Charlie Proctor, who was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma last year, will lead out Rovers at Ewood Park tomorrow before their last home game of the season against Aston Villa.

He will then be whisked over to Accrington Stanley where he will lead out players in the second half of their last home league two game against Luton Town.

Charlie's family are trying to raise £315,000 to fly him to America for treatment he can't get in the UK.

Accrington Stanley owner Andy Holt has said he will give £1 for every retweet he gets on a tweet about Charlie's cause.
