Childhood friends of a terminally-ill Worksop man joined together to help raise funds for him at a football tournament.

The event at North Notts Arena, on Friday, August 28, was organised by former East Midlands United (EMU) junior football team manager Malcolm Reynolds in aid of Liam Buckley, 23, who has terminal bowel cancer.

Former players of EMU laced up their boots for the Liam Buckley Cup to raise more than £200. The funds generated will go towards ‘Liam’s Dream Fund’ - a fundraising page set-up by a family friend to help make the Manchester United fan’s last wish of a visit to the seaside come true.

Liam presented the trophy and medals to the winning team of Timo Rodgers, Arron Muir, Tom Dolby and Craig Gladwin.
