Premier League derby matches can often be ill-tempered affairs, but when these two teams took to the pitch at the weekend it was all about raising funds for a special little girl.
A group of former Tottenham Hotspur stars and celebrities took on a team from the Arsenal Foundation in aid of The Stacey Mowle Appeal.
Stacey, eight, of Trafalgar Road, Gravesend, suffers from a rare type of cancer known as relapsed neuroblastoma and needs £500,000 to pay for the cost of specialist treatment in the USA.
The North London Derby for Stace was held at Dartford FC’s Princes Park Stadium last Sunday.
It featured former Spurs midfielder Micky Hazard with former Gillingham midfielder and manager Andy Hessenthaler.
Ex-Spurs and England international Darren Anderton was also meant to play but had to pull out due to unforeseen circumstances.
The world of showbusiness was represented with comedian and EastEnders actor Terry Alderton, actor Rob Gee (Vinny in Guy Ritchie’s Snatch), actor Ralf Little (Antony in The Royle Family), 2013 X Factor contestant Sam Callahan and Ground Force builder Tommy Walsh.
Gravesend girl and 2013 X Factor contestant Tamera Foster was joined in the crowd by Birds of a Feather star and fellow campaign supporter Linda Robson.
The next campaign fundraiser was on yesterday, when Stacey’s Evening of Music will be held at the Conservative Club in Parrock Street, Gravesend, from 7pm to midnight.
While today, a day of music, a barbecue and family fun is being held at the Six Bells pub, Old Perry Street, Northfleet, from 1pm.
There is a 2-page picture special in the Gravesend Messenger, out now.
