Sheffield FC chairman Richard Tims sent two raffle prizes to support the Stephen Sutton Charity Football Day on May 12.

One, a hard back book celebrating 150 years of the World’s First Football Club and the other a book entitled Rules, Regulations & Laws of the Sheffield Foot-Ball Club from 1859.

Two charity games will take place at the The Scholars Ground when the event takes place and Sheffield FC manager Ian Whitehorne presented the donations to Stephen Sutton and Craig Harris before their recent league game at Chasetown.

A bucket collection also took place during the game for Teenage Cancer Trust, raising £161.71.
