and live on Freeview channel 276
Dad-of-three Ben Palmer was diagnosed with cancer two years ago but thankfully made a full recovery and was able to return to the pitch for Chapeltown Royal British Legion FC.
On Saturday, the 34-year-old managed a Chapeltown RBL Legends team, who took on the current squad in a charity match in aid of Cancer Research UK.
His ‘legends’ lost an entertaining match 5-3 St Georges Park Thorncliffe but the day was a huge success, with around 100 spectators turning up and the fundraising appeal having already smashed its £500 target to pass the £2,000 mark.
The match was organised by Ben and fellow club members Adam Todd, Dale Shaw and Dave Adams to raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK to continue its research and give more people the best possible chance of beating the disease.
