Andover New Street Football Club hosted an end-of-season Charity Match between the Home Team - the Legends - and Andover's local radio station - Andover Sound.

Under Mick Bugg's chairmanship, Martin Tobin did most of the organising of the game as Charity Match Co-ordinator, which was well-supported by a good crowd, and by generous sponsorship.

Andover New Street hold an annual charity match, and this year's challengers were 106.4 - Andover's local radio station which started almost exactly a year ago.

At half time, there was a demonstration from the Brazilian Soccer School; and at full-time there was a demonstration from Streets Ahead, followed by New Street's penalty shoot-out final.
Andover Sound battled back from going 2-0 down early in the game to draw level just before the half time break. The game finished 2-2 and they won the penalty shootout 5-4 to take the trophy.

Before the kick-off, Sir George shook hands with both teams and told the crowd that the game at New Street was the big game of the day, not the rival attraction at Wembley.

Each of the teams' chosen charities: Testway Transform, Streets Ahead and Stephen's Ark, received a cheque for £1200 each. A donation of £300 was also given to the parents of Andover schoolboy Jamie Gentleman who died earlier this year. The money will go towards the Jamie G Memorial Fund.
