Director at NC Construction Nick Coulson said: “The 5 – 1 score line is a bit deceiving, as it was a very close game until team NC took control half way through the second half, after their opponents, Luggar Electrical had hit the bar and the post twice in the first half.

“The real winners though are St Francis Hospice, as £2,150 was raised, helped by the wonderful raffle prizes donated by friends and local businesses, bringing the total raised by NC Construction since partnering the hospice to over £20,000.
