Kevin Davies' testimonial match is starting to take shape, with plans in place for former teammates and celebrities to partake in the highly-anticipated event.

Davies, who represented Bolton between 2003 and 2013, was granted a testimonial date last year, after completing a decade of service at the Reebok Stadium - under the management of Sam Allardyce, Sammy Lee, Gary Megson, Owen Coyle and, finally, Dougie Freedman.

The 37-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract at Preston North End, will put on a Bolton shirt one last time on either Friday 31st July or Saturday 1st August, 2015, subject to confirmation from Wanderers officials.

Former Trotters players Stelios Giannakopoulos, Ivan Campo, Henrik Pedersen, Nicky Hunt and Anthony Barness are among those already believed to be joining Davies at Macron Stadium, while names such as Jay-Jay Okocha, Ricardo Gardner, Fernando Hierro, Youri Djorkaeff and Fabrice Muamba have all been contacted regarding their availability.

Possible opponents for Davies' team look set to include ex-colleagues from former clubs, such as Chesterfield's Ritchie Humphreys and Southampton legend Claus Lundekvam, with celebrities including Vernon Kay, Ralf Little and Antony Cotton also said to be interested in playing.

Davies made 407 appearances for Bolton, after joining on a free transfer from Southampton. In total, he netted 84 goals for the club before his controversial departure last year.
