A charity football match at Guilden Morden featuring a number of ex-professionals has raised £4,000 for the cardiology department at Cambridge’s Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
The match between The Stutes Past & Present and The Great English Fry Up finished in a 2-2 draw, watched by a 400-strong crowd.
The Great English Fry Up – managed by ex-Peterborough boss Barry Fry and one-time Bee Gees manager David English – went ahead through Aaron McLean’s goal, before strikes from Alex Fallon and Ada Cambridge put The Stutes ahead.
The game finished level though when five-year-old Jude Mackail-Smith, son of former Peterborough striker Craig Mackail-Smith, found the net late on.
Organiser Peter Leete said: “A massive heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who played, to everyone who helped set up and organise and to all the sponsors.
