The Wisbech Town Acorns Football Club reserves team was presented with a new kit at their charity football match in aid of Will’s Wheels.
The match raised £275 for the Wimblington-based charity, which aims to raise £24,000 to buy Will Storey a life-changing wheelchair.
So far £15,000 has been raised for Will, who was born prematurely at 26 weeks weighing just 1lb 11.5oz, has cerebral palsy which confines him to a wheelchair.
At the fundraiser Howdens Joinery, which has opened a showroom in Wisbech, presented the team with their new kit.
The charity match game was played in extreme heat and finished 3-1 to the reserves. The goal scorers were Hristo Dragnev, Ahmed Aliosman and Andrew Fay.
