Brandon Town Youth Football Club will be playing 11-a-side, 5-a-side and walking football from 9am to 9pm today at the Remembrance Playing Fields as it attempts to raise more than £4,500 for Cancer Research UK this weekend.

More than 60 male and female players are already registered to play, while extra players are welcome throughout the day.

Players are especially welcome from 6pm to 9pm, and only need to wear appropriate kit, including boots. It is £20 to play, but other donations will be accepted.
