A BENEFIT football match has been organised between Royston Town and The Jolly Boys.
Mark Newman, who has been manager of the Guilden Morden-based Jolly Boys for a number of years, has been diagnosed with leukaemia and has spent the past three weeks in hospital.
Match organiser and Royston Town striker Craig Hammond said: "I've known Mark for a while and he loves his football.
"He comes down to Garden Walk to watch Royston on a Saturday and manages the Jolly Boys on a Sunday - so he will love this.
"He's had a difficult time lately and he won't be working for a while, so hopefully the game will help him out a bit.
"I'm sure it will cheer him up and it promises to be a good day."
