The game's been organised by Redlynch and Woodfalls FC in aid of Tony Randall who's been unable to work during his treatment in hospital.

It's a big day for 52 players, across 4 teams, who've all signed-up to take part in a football competition at the Ray Mac stadium in Salisbury.

HELPING TONY:

The match is being staged in aid of 37-year-old Dad of 4 Tony Randall, who was diagnosed with blood cancer in 2018.

His chemotherapy treatment and other illnesses stopped him from working.

Tony's is a former player with Redlynch and Woodfalls FC.

His mates at the club decided to pull together to help him and came up with the idea of a charity fundraiser match.

The money raised today (Sunday 14th April) will go towards helping with day to day life for Tony and his family, with four young children.

Each player has donated £20 to take part in the game, with half of the money also going towards the Salisbury Hospice. There will also be a charity auction.

Andy Savage, who helped organise today's game, has encouraged everyone to come along.

It'll kick off at 2pm.
