Eastern Daily Press and Evening News staff raised £680 for Norfolk cancer charity The Big C after playing a football game at Norwich City’s Carrow Road.
The game, which ended 3-3 with the Yellow and Green All-Stars winning on penalties, was arranged by Norwich City sponsors LeoVegas.
The match was refereed by Keith Morris, who as a level five qualified official in the Norfolk FA can officiate games at the highest level of local football.
Players had to pay a £10 and £20 fine for receiving yellow and red cards respectively, but Mr Morris said the ‘great spirit’ and behaviour of the teams meant he didn’t have to put anyone in the book.
Editor David Powles said: “The talent levels may not have been of the usual standard to grace Carrow Road but the effort certainly was. We’re really grateful to LeoVegas and Norwich City for allowing us to use the pitch and hopefully the money can do some real good for those with cancer.”
