PHOTOS: Niall Horan and 1D team up for charity football match

ONE Direction star Niall Horan enlisted the help of his celebrity pals on the football pitch to raise money for charity on Monday.

Fellow band members Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson joined Olly Murs, James Cordon, Jack Whitehall, Ronan Keating and team captain Piers Morgan for the inaugural Niall Horan Charity Football Challenge at King Power Stadium in Leicester.

Niall, a Derby County fan, was benched following a recent knee surgery, but his team took on a number of world-class footballers including former County captain Robbie Savage in the match.

All proceeds from the match will now go to Mullingar-based charity Irish Autism Action, UK charity Heart and Minds Challenge and the Leicester City Foxes Foundation.
