Cawston youngsters give Reepham police a friendly drubbing
A charity football match in memory of a north Norfolk teenager saw a team of youngsters thrash a police side 6-2.
The match, at Cawston Primary School, raised more than �810, with donations still being collected, for Macmillan Cancer Support and Help For Heroes.
The annual challenge has taken place for the past three years in memory of 16-year-old Cawston resident, and Reepham High School pupil, Matthew Fletcher, who died from leukaemia in 2006.
This year's event was organised by Matthew's younger brother James Fletcher, and Olly Abel, both 16, together with PCSO Stephen Bridges.
It was the first time that the police have lost the match and afterwards the youngsters joined their opponents, officers from Reepham Safer Neighbourhood Team, for a barbecue and raffle in Cawston's Bell pub.
