A CHARITY match between Padiham FC Veterans and Towneley High School Old Boys (later Towneley Athletic FC) led to £2,300 being raised for Pendleside Hospice.

The game ended all square at 2-2 at the Arbories, with the money being raised through a raffle, an auction, gate money and programme sales.

Lammack hit back after the interval to take a 3-2 lead, before a late equaliser by Hayton to complete her brace.
