A FOOTBALL tournament raised £350 for a cancer charity set up in memory of one of the country’s finest ever players.

Hastings Ambulance Station hosted the tournament at Horntye Sports Complex in Bohemia Road, and the defending champions from 1066 Country narrowly missed out on defending their national crown - losing to the West Midlands Ambulance Service on penalties.

Teams from as far afield as South Yorkshire and Birmingham took part, raising £350 for the Bobby Moore Fund and Cancer Research UK.

One of the organisers said: “The day was a success and money raised went to a good cause.

“We would like to thanks Horntye for hosting the tournament and evening presentation, Superstitch for supplying the balls and Tesco for supplying the refreshments for the day.”

A host of other firms donated raffle prizes.
