A REMATCH could be on the cards following the success of a charity game between a group of dads and Fulford FC Veterans team.

The parents, who usually spend Sunday mornings cheering on their daughters in Fulford U10s girls team, swapped places to play their own match at the Parish Fields in Fulford, with Joe Van Bui giving up his time to referee.

The Veterans won 4-2, but event organiser and U10s coach, Chris Moffatt, said: "Everybody put in a great effort."

Chris who works for Aldi said the £337 raised from the event would go to the Teenage Cancer Trust, his employer's partner charity. "I've had messages from players and parents thanking us for a great day and asking for a rematch so we may be looking at having a rematch in the summer."

There was a tombola, raffle and refreshments, while junior goals were put up for children to use.

"As I work at Aldi and Teenage Cancer Trust is the charity that they support I took it upon myself to start a charity football match last year which was successful and decided to try and make it an annual event with permission from Aldi," added Chris.

"I would like to thank everyone that came down and gave up their free time to play football or help on a stall. If there was no help then the event would not have been possible."

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity solely focused on supporting young people aged 13 to 24 living with cancer.
