A charity game was held last Saturday in New Ferry Park in memory of a young Tranmere fan who died of a brain tumour.

Nate Gidman died aged five in 2022.

Nate’s dad, Phil, and Sands United FC founder Andrew Wilesith said the game helped other parents who have lived with child loss come together.

Tranmere Rovers supported the cause by donating tickets to their game and a signed shirt, which was brought down by Tranmere player Charlie Jolley.

Nate’s Rovers took on Sands United FC, a team in Ipswich that supports those affected by baby loss.

The game was an exciting encounter with 10 goals scored. The final score finished 8-2 to Nate’s Rovers, but the result wasn’t important.

The game raised £2,527.32 for Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group.

Every penny raised will go towards funding childhood cancer research.
