Celebrities turn out for Potters Bar charity match
A FOOTBALL frenzy was on offer in aid of charity at Potters Bar Town Football Club on Sunday.
A team of celebrities, dubbed the All Stars, took on a team of ex-football professionals, with the pros winning 7-5.
The event was organised by Big Brother 11 housemate Steve ‘The Baron’ Gill, and so far has raised around �3,500 for The Wise Foundation, which promotes a number of philanthropic causes.
All Stars captain Jim Hemmings told the Potters Bar Edition: “It was a mad day and we raised quite a bit of money for the charity as well.”
He also spoke of a bizarre moment when Big Brother star Sam Pepper put the ball up his shirt, ran to the opposing goal line and shot, only for the keeper to pull off a stunning save.
