MORE than 130 young footballers put their best foot forward to help raise £3,700 for the Oxford Children’s Hospital.

The 13 under-eight and under nine football teams took part in the Play2Give fundraising tournament at Court Place Farm on Sunday.

Organiser Andrew Baker said: “It was buzzing. There was just such a good atmosphere.”

The 25-year-old said £3,700 had already been totted up but there was still sponsorship and refreshment sales to add to the fundraising total.

Mr Baker, of Didcot, was born with a brain injury causing neurological problems such as spatial and learning difficulties.

He made a good recovery after a major operation in 2001 but balance and mobility problems reappeared in 2009.

Mr Bakes now raises money for the Headington hospital to thank staff who helped save his life.
