Former footballing team mates of a dying Wisbech woman are coming together at next weekend for a one off match in her honour.

Natalie Blandford-Heaney has been diagnosed with an extremely rare, and aggressive type of cancer known as carcinoma of the sinus and sadly she is in stage 4, meaning it is incurable.

As a result Natalie, who currently lives in Outwell with her wife Connie, who she married at a poignant ceremony in December,is hoping to make as many happy memories as she can with family and friends and also have some fun while she still can.

Various events are being organised to help boost funds and among them is the special game on Saturday (26) at West Lynn Social Club, King's Lynn.

The match will see both of Natalie's former teams battle it out for the Blandford Cup.
