Everyone was a winner at the third annual Joseph Stockton Charity football match, which has raised more than £3,000 and still counting.

The day was arranged to raise money for four-year-old Joseph who suffers from a rare neurological brain disorder as well as a number of other good causes including a sensory room for his school and the Remembering Rebecca charity.

Scott Rees & Co Team Manager Jamie O’Rourke was appointed referee for the match, which saw the Stocky’s Reds take on Birdy’s Blues in a thrilling encounter.

Jamie, who himself raised a fantastic personal total of £439 which included the £250 donation from Scott Rees, is a close friend of Joseph’s family and was delighted to be a part of the event.

He said: “It really is great to see so many people showing their support for such a deserving cause and the amount raised is fantastic.

“The match itself was entertaining as ever with the Blues running out eventual winners by a handsome margin. As you can see from our pictures there was plenty of action to keep everyone entertained.

“But the most important result of the day is undoubtedly the amount raised and the level of support this event receives, which continues to increase year upon year.”

Joseph suffers from rare neurological brain disorder called Lissencephaly and for the past three years the football event has been run in order to raise money for his charity, The Joseph Stockton Fund.
