Park Ladies Football Club fearlessly faced off against the March Bears Rugby Club men’s team, trading their familiar fields for a thrilling game of football – and all to raise money for a good cause. A Park Ladies spokesperson described it as “a riveting clash of codes and genders”.

The ‘Fun Day Friendly’, which took place at Parkfield Sports Club in Wimblington on Sunday 24th September, raised more than £345 for Hot Pots Community Café.

Hot Pots Community Café is a local initiative that provides work opportunities for people with learning disabilities and helps them to develop essential life skills.

Rob Mitchell, manager of Park Ladies FC, said: “Park Ladies have always relied on the superb support of our fans and the local community, so it was brilliant to be able to give something back today.”

“We’ve got a tough run of fixtures coming up in October, so today’s match was a fantastic test of our team’s physical strength and determination as well.”

Park Ladies FC face Newmarket Town FC Ladies Development on Sunday 1st October at Doddington Recreation Ground in what could be a season-defining game, before facing high-flying Whittlesey Athletic and Real Bedford Ladies Reserves in the league and Histon FC Ladies Devs in the cup later in the month.

Any experienced players looking to join the club are invited to come along to a training session, with more information available on the Park Ladies Facebook page at www.facebook.com/parkladies
