EVERYONE was a winner at an 11-a-side football match which raised over £1,000 for charity.

Gemma Russell, 25, and her partner Luis Quilter arranged an 11-a-side, 90-minute football match on the Great Salterns playing fields, in Copnor.

The pair decided to raise money for The Rowans Hospice as Luis’ auntie, Tina Downs, is living in the hospice.

The opposing team also had a player whose family member, Paula Hutton, died from cancer.

Gemma said: ‘We wanted to raise money for The Rowans because both teams had a personal connection.

‘So far we have reached £1,300 but there is still a bit more to come in so we smashed our target of around £600.

‘Everyone had such a good team and the 4-4 draw meant everyone was a winner.’
