Waiting for Video...

Over £25,000 was raised for a Doncaster cancer charity as big name stars from the world of football gave a masterclass to an amateur XI.

A legends team lined up at the Keepmoat Stadium to raise money for the The Eve Merton Dreams Trust, which makes dreams come true for cancer sufferers.

The Legends team included former England star Des Walker, along with Alan Kennedy, a two time European Cup winner with Liverpool in the 1980s.

Also lining up was Bruce Dyer who dyed his hair pink and green - the charity’s colours - for the game to thank fans for helping him raise £600 in sponsorship.

Also playing were Peter Beagrie, Carlton Palmer, Phil Babb, Danny Schofield Lee Hendrie, Andy Sinton, Rufus Brevett, Brian Stock and Colin Douglas, lining up against a team of fundraisers from the Doncaster community.

The legends were 6-1 winners, although the charity team scored when Rossington All saints teacher Adam Myers played a pin point ball into the area for Balby Carr Sports Academy’s Ryan Lewis to find the net.
