Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant reportedly pays £900 to charity to represent Wolverhampton Wanderers in a testimonial match for Jody Craddock.

Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant reportedly made a successful £900 bid to play for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 65-year-old donated the cash during Jody Craddock's testimonial dinner this week in a bid to raise money for the Birmingham Children's Hospital.

According to BBC Sport, Plant will now take part in next year's testimonial match for the 38-year-old, whose son Toby has been treated for leukaemia at the Children's Hospital.

Former Wolves manager Mick McCarthy is also said to have been in attendance at the event, which welcomed 280 guests.
