Game played in memory of Peter

The sun shone as 40 former team-mates of all ages, shapes and sizes, turned out on Sunday to pay their respects to former Long Sutton player, Peter Warner.

The popular sportsman died last year of a heart attack and the club wanted to celebrate his life - and the memorial match was the result.

With one team managed by Graham Smith and the other co-led by Paul Preston and Andy Gray, the game ended in a 5-4 win to Graham's side.

Magpie Jeremy King said: "It was very well supported and Pete's dad and brother - who are 73 and 52 - played as well.

"The weather was fantastic. We don't know yet how much we've raised for charity."
