Two pubs went into battle in a charity football match, raising £1,637 for East Anglian Air Ambulance.

James Patrick was the hat-trick hero as Leverington pub Six Ringers beat the Black Bear, of Walsoken, 3-1 at the Leverington Sports and Social Club.

After the match there was a barbecue, raffle and an auction.

Landlords Eddie Taylor, of the Six Ringers, and Joe Hill, of the Black Bear, said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank every one that helped during the day, the players in the manner the game was played and Ashley Baldry for his refereeing.

“We would also like to thank Leverington Sports and Social for the use of the pitch and facilities. This will be an annual event raising money for good causes.”
