The annual charity football match in memory of former Westbury PC Mike Johnson was played at Westbury Town Football Ground on Sunday.
A team from Wiltshire Police’s E Division, drawing from the county outside Swindon, took on the Armed Response Group (ARG) at Westbury United’s ground in a competitive match.
PC Johnson, who had played for both teams, died of a heart attack aged 46, after collapsing while jogging to work in August 2009.
The match, which finished 3-3, raised more than £280, which will be split between Wiltshire Air Ambulance and the Micky Johnson Memorial Garden at Dilton Marsh Primary School.
Sergeant Dave Hall, who helped organise the friendly, said: “It was a really nice occasion.”
