Friendly rivalry between two football teams was converted into cash for charity.

Newark Town played RHP in a match at the YMCA Community and Activity Village in Newark to raise money for the Children's Bereavement Centre.

"It was a battle of wills from the off as the players, some of whom hadn’t played in a while, took to the astro to let the battle commence," said Newark Town spokesman Sarah Robinson.

“It was a fast-paced game with fortunately injuries kept to a minimum, just a knock to the knee for an RHP player in the second-half.

"No doubt there will be a few stiff joints in the days to come."

With a final score of 9-4 to RHP and over £250 raised for the charity, it was a positive event that the clubs would like to repeat in the future.

The Newark-based Children's Bereavement Centre supports young people affected by the death or terminal illness of a loved one.
