Winning team - Team Carl - with the Everall Cup

Former Crewe Alex and Nantwich Town stars faced each other at the Everall Derby charity football game.

Twin brothers Simon and Carl Everall organised the game in memory of friend Gareth Jones, who died of cancer aged just 31.

Gareth had been a talented footballer from Crewe before the disease struck.

Former Crewe Alex favourites Dele Adebola, Rodney Jack, Steve Walters, Mark Rivers, Steve Jones, Nicky Maynard, Kenny Lunt, Lee Bell and David Artell all took part.

Also at the Cumberland Arena in Crewe for the event was former Northern Ireland star and Nantwich Town boss Jimmy Quinn and Dabbers defender Darren Moss.
