A RECENT charity match between ex-Stoke City and Port Vale players, organised by a soccer legend from the Moorlands, has raised more than £20,000.

The game was initiated by former Port Vale striker Tony Naylor, from Leek, and was played in front of a near-4,000 crowd at Vale Park to raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease.

Tony's father has the condition and he has donated the money raised to the North Staffordshire-based charity Approach, which helps people suffering from dementia.

In the event, the charity match ended with an 8-0 victory for the Vale legends over their Potteries rivals.

The Stoke team included former England and Everton star Mike Pejic, who also lives in Leek.
