Two local football clubs would raise more than £1300 with a charity match on bank holiday Monday. 

Hexham Hearts took on Haydon Bridge at the Low Hall on Monday, August 28 for their annual charity game. 

This year's event saw the two clubs raise more than £1300 for Cancer Research and Dementia UK. 

Samantha Beavers, who helped organise the day alongside her son, Owen Hogg, said:

"Every year on the bank holiday Monday, the Haydon Bridge football team does a charity match. This year they decided to do it for cancer research and dementia which touches a lot of families around the area.

"Owen Hogg, who is my son, went around and collected raffle prizes. We had the match down at the Low Hall at Haydon Bridge and then went on to the Haydonian club, who donated on the day. We did the raffle, bacon sandwiches, and cups of tea, and we made over £1300.

"A lot of places were called off because of the weather on Sunday but we only had one shower, so it was great, there was a good turnout of people."

The two teams played out an exciting 3-3 draw before Haydon Bridge triumphed on penalties.
