MORE than �2,000 was raised at a football tournament organised to raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
Set up by WGC FC co-manager Del Deanus, who has the condition, Saturday's competition featured teams of various ability.
Among those playing was WGC midfielder Junior Lewis, who has graced the Premier League in his days as a Leicester City player.
Del, 35, said money raised from the event will go to the North and East Herts MND Association "as a way of saying thank you" for all it has done for him.
