Results are in for charity footy match
THE big winner was Ryedale Special Families when two teams got together for a charity football match.
Around 50 players, ranging in age from 16 to 50, took part in the game at Old Malton just after Christmas with donations, a football memorabilia auction and charity raffle raising £1,100 for the charity.
The match, between teams from The Union, Norton, and The Royal Oak, Malton, is held annually with proceeds going to different causes and finished 2-0 to The Union.
A minute’s silence was also held for Malcolm “Lofty” Braithwaite, the landlord of The Royal Oak, who had sadly passed away before Christmas.
Organiser James Milson, of The Royal Oak, said: “We had a very good turnout and as always the game was played in the right spirit. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who made a donation to Ryedale Special Families and who turned out on the day to support the teams.”
A party was held at The Royal Oak afterwards which included the auction and raffle.
Items for the charity auction came from York City, Everton, Liverpool, Southampton, Middlesbrough, Sunderland, Celtic and Rangers, with raffle prizes and meal vouchers donated by the Middleton Arms, the Royal Oak, New Globe, El Gringos in Scarborough and Malton, The Derwent Arms and The Yard.
