The two-hour match finished 17-10 as defences entered the charitable mood. Charlery re-lived his glory days by popping a goal in from 40 yards.

Kate Bement from Sue Ryder said: “Thank you to everyone at Mick George Ltd for organising such a fantastic event and to Peterborough United for being the perfect host.

“Together everyone has helped to raise enough money to fund over 480 hours of incredible care for our patients.”
