Rugby players hope a keenly-fought charity game will raise more than £1,000 towards a chemotherapy pump for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
West Norfolk RFC took on a squad of former players - aka The Forgotten - at their Gatehouse Lane ground in North Wootton.
Despite their name, the visitors clearly hadn’t forgotten how to play, leaving the pitch 34 - 22 ahead at the final whistle.
Both sides put their differences aside in the bar, where aquaintances were renewed and bidding was brisk in the charity auction.
The game was staged in memory of Paul Day, a former club coach who died of cancer five years ago. Players have played a charity match in his memory every year since.
