A non-league football team in Molesey braved the cold on Boxing Day to play a match in memory of a former member and player.

Two mixed teams from Molesey FC, who are in the Isthmian League South Central Division, faced each other at the club's Walton Road ground.

They gathered in memory of Andrew Corteil, or "Radar," who died in September 2016. He was supported by Princess Alice Hospice after his diagnosis of cancer and spent time as a patient at the Esher facility.

The club raised a total of £450. Handing over the donation, Marisa Billett, wife of board member Mark Billet, said: “Apart from the match – which was won by the whites 8-3 on the day, a raffle was also held to boost the total.”

The match was the third played for the Jewson cup in Radar’s memory, which is up for challenge annually.

Marisa said that one of Radar’s friends worked for Jewsons and agreed to donate the cup for the annual charity match in honour of Radar, and to help raise vital funds for the Hospice.

Marisa is a volunteer for the Hospice, as a carer’s companion – supporting a carer during their loved one’s final days and afterwards for as long as they’re needed.

Accepting the donation, Clare Petrie of Supporter Care said: “It’s lovely to hear that this gentleman will be remembered with affection by way of the annual match each Christmas.

“The funds raised will go direct towards helping us provide our care services across a wide area as well as here at Esher – for which we are grateful.”
