The Stuart Seekings Cup Final raised more than £900 for a brain tumour charity.

The cup was retained by winners Ely City who recorded the same score as last year’s final against Littleport.

They defeated Little Downham Swifts FC 3-1 at Ely City FC.

Stuart Seekings’ mother Julie Lewis said: “It was just a fantastic but an emotional evening for me.

“I am delighted Ely City won and that their guest player Jamie Gayfer of Littleport Town FC and ex Littleport team mate Soham’s Callum Butcher came up together to collect the winner’s trophy.”

More than £900 was raised over the three matches played which will go towards Brain Tumour Charity, the disease that tragically took Stuart Seekings three years ago at the age of just 30.

Before the final Littleport Town committee member Cathy Gibb de Swarte invited all four officials to take part in her 22 press ups in 22 days challenge for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and they all obliged with a surprise round of applause after they completed the task.
