WATCH: Clash of the Clubs proves a huge success

The Tameside Stadium was a hive of activity on Wednesday night, as two clubs went head-to-head in a bid to raise funds for charity.

The football fixture, dubbed Clash of the Clubs, saw Curzon Ashton Football Club Junior coaches take on Manchester Corinthians JFC coaches, raising funds for the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital Charity and the The Myton Hospices in Leamington.

It was organised as part of an effort to support two junior players, Jimmy Gledhill & Tom Jackson, who are being treated on Ward 84 at the Manchester Children’s Hospital.

We spoke to event organisers Steven Gemmell and Clayton Palmer about the reasons behind the fixture.
