A FOOTBALL tournament involving a team of celebrity lookalikes versus former Albion stars raised nearly £2,500 for charity.

The tournament, which provided the peculiar spectacle of former Seagulls player Kerry Mayo pitted against Mrs Brown and Simon Cowell, attracted more than 500 spectators.

It was organised by Chandlers Building Supplies and head of marketing Sue McKinney said: “We are delighted that the day was such a success. With the likes of Mrs Brown, Simon Cowell, David Beckham, Robbie Williams, Prince Harry and Kate Moss taking part, there was a lot of fun and photos.”

The money raised by the match on Sunday, hosted by Seaford Town FC at their home ground The Crouch, will go towards four charities – the Rainy Day Trust, Teenage Cancer Trust, Variety and Sussex-based charity We Only Live Once (WOLO).

Cancer survivor Fler Wright of WOLO, a charity which helps families through cancer treatment, said: “We were thrilled to be part of such a fantastic event.

“Not only will the funds be very helpful but it was also a great platform for WOLO to raise its profile and communicate our charitable goals locally.”

Celeb FC, a group of celebrity footballers who organise and volunteer at charity events, provided the team of lookalikes called Team Lookalikes.

They were managed by Simon Cowell lookalike Andy Penfold and also included former Big Brother winner Jason Burrill.

Britain’s Got Talent runner-up Wayne Woodward also provided entertainment for the event.

Other sides who competed included two Chandlers Building Supplies teams from Lewes and Petford, two Seaford FC Veterans teams and Newhaven Ladies veteran team HRT UTD.

The hard-fought tournament was won by Celebs FC.
