Strong, Dessie as he is known to fans, will share the proceeds from the match with four charities which have supported his family - Clic Sargent, the Archie Foundation, Macmillan Cancer Support and Breast Cancer UK.

Daniel (11), had to overcome a brain tumour as a youngster but lives as normal a life as possible.

Dessie's partner Angela fought a battle with breast cancer.

Aberdeen, Daniel's favourite team, will provide the opposition for the match on Thursday, February 16 at 8pm.

Former Buckie keeper Kevin Main will be part of the Buckie squad on the night.
