The proceeds raised will go to NTDF towards helping with transport and day-to-day running of the club.

Craig Acton, NTDF head coach and event organiser, said: “NTDF have decided to change it up in regards to fundraising so we thought why not just play football for a day – do what we love to help those who love the game too.

“Any donations would be greatly appreciated.”
