Well-known faces from the world of sport came together to play a charity football match in aid of Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

The event at Prescot Cables FC’s Volair Park ground took place in honour of teenager Jack Riding, who died of an underlying heart condition last summer.

Stars including boxers Tony Bellew and Liam and Callum Smith joined former professional footballers Leon Osman and Lee Trundle among other big names to make up the CRY Select XI.

They played against Prescot Cables Reserves to achieve a 3-0 victory in front of a crowd of pitch-side supporters.

The event raised a significant amount of money for CRY, which has supported the Riding family and organises free cardiac health screenings around the country.
