ASTON VILLA OLD STARS PLAY ROSS FOR ACORNS
ROSS GUNNERS ALL STARS 6 - ASTON VILLA OLD STARS 6

Ross Gunners All Stars certainly met their match on Sunday afternoon when they played football against the Aston Villa Old Stars at the John Kyrle High School. Lots of people turned up to watch this long awaited event which came about when Steve 'Ozzy' Bond, Gary Davies and friends decided to raise money for Acorns Children's Hospice. The local side have held lots of fund raising events for Acorns over the past ten months, culminating in the Match of the Day on Sunday.

Before the game, which was kicked off by Ross Town Mayor, Councillor Jo Lane, the Aston Villa side ran coaching sessions for some of the junior football sides and were happy to sign autographs for them too. After having seen some of the game it seems that the two sides were pretty evenly matched and the event ended in a 6-6 draw.

Further details of the charity match will be published in the next issue of Wyenot News but for now, some of the highlights of the match can be seen in this week's WNTV programme, 'The Week in Moving Pictures'.
