A CHARITY football tournament due to take place last Saturday at John of Gaunt School in aid of Dorothy House and the RUH Cancer Care Campaign will now take place this Sunday.

Brothers Liam and Sean Brereton, who organised the tournament, were forced to call it off on Saturday due to the severe storm that swept the county.

The rescheduled event, running from 11am-5.30pm, will include a five-a-side football tournament featuring 24 teams, as well as a barbecue, raffle and a penalty shootout competition for visitors.

The brothers are holding the event in tribute to their mother Carol, who died of cancer in January 2010, and grandmother Jean Selway, who died five months before following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Liam, 28, said: “The weather was too bad last Saturday, so hopefully it’s kinder to us this Sunday.

“Anyone is welcome to come along. The charities are both important to us, so hopefully we can raise a lot.”

Admission to the event is free.
