IT WAS boys against girls in a wacky charity netball match organised by a popular pub.

Landlady of the Market House Tavern and Three Tuns pub in Gosport, Ann-Marie Titcombe, organised the annual charity match at St Vincent College, Mill Lane, with her husband Cliff.

The Misfits girls’ netball team took on the Portsmouth Pirates Aussie Rules football team to raise money for Help For Heroes. Mrs Titcombe said: ‘We started doing it last year because we thought it would be fun to have the two teams at the Market House play each other for charity.

‘I have a son in one and a daughter in the other so I supported both, but the girls won in the end.’ So far they have raised £300 for charity and HSBC have agreed to match the money brought in by the teams from sponsorship, bucket collections and a raffle.
