Ex-professional footballers, wrestlers and boxers joined forces as they took to the pitch to support a two-year-old boy in his fight against cancer.
The star-studded team faced off against a side of staff and students from the Football Industry College as part of a charity match and family fun day on Sunday.
The efforts were to help Jaymen Woolston's family raise money to provide the two-year-old, who has neuroblastoma, with further treatment.
Spectators were also entertained by an inflatable fun course, festival glitter and a raffle at Norwich United Football Club in Blofield.
Jaymen, from Lowestoft, was diagnosed with cancer in January and was given a survival rate of less than 40pc.
