The Mo Team Brid Boro members, captained by Ryan Wilson, have raised £1,207 so far this year on top of the incredible £8,100 in 2021.

The total was boosted when the team recently hosted a charity one-day 6-a-side football tournament at Bridlington CYP.

Ryan said: “The event saw 12 local teams enter, 90-plus players play, and most importantly, £641.46 raised for the Movember Foundation.

“Alongside the help of volunteers, local businesses and sponsors, the tournament and raffle went really well with very positive feedback, which is very pleasing.

“Telegraph FC A team were eventually victorious with a narrow 1-0 final win over Movemboro.

“I’m hoping this event is something I can put on and make better each year.

“I would like to say a big thank you to Lighthouse Fisheries, Flamborough, for sponsoring the games, Dave Grosse for sponsoring the trophies, and finally Bridlington CYP for giving us the pitch for the day free of charge.”

Ryan is also looking to cover 300 miles in November as part of the team’s fundraising campaign.
