More than 700 people descended on St Ives Town Football Club on Sunday to watch a Tottenham Hotspur Legends side take on Houghton and Wyton in a charity match.
The exhibition match, held to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, saw the likes of Justin Edinburgh, David Howells, Mark Falco, and Tony Galvin take the field for the Spurs Legends in a match they won 3-1.
After the match, the Legends and supporters headed back to the Three Jolly Butchers pub in Wyton for an auction, fundraising raffle and a chance to pose with the FA Cup.
In all, the event raised about £15,000 for Macmillan and the Woodlands Centre, in Huntingdon.
Among the auction lots were signed Harry Kane shirts, football match tickets, a Hugo Lloris signed shirt and more.
