A bumper crowd of 162 people watched ex-professional footballers and reality TV stars battle it out at a charity football match.
Footballers Paul Konchesky and Marlon Harewood were among the stars at the third game organised by City College Norwich student Harry Cottenden, 18, who founded the team, Help Delete Cancer FC, to take part.
The game at Fakenham Town’s ground on Suunday, April 8 raised £3,500 for Macmillan.
Help Delete Cancer FC were pitted against Macmillan FC at 1pm, and AFC Macmillan at 3pm, and won both games 9-0.
The teenager tweeted afterwards: “Best day of my life. Two stunning trophies won. Shared the pitch with 22 of my heroes.”
