FOOTBALLING legends rolled back the years to raise more than £1,000 in memory of a popular youngster whose cancer battle touched hearts all over Wrexham.

Jaxon Langford died aged just six at his home in Heol y Ffynnon, Bradley last year, after being diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma cancer in 2015.

Fundraising has continued in his memory with former Wrexham AFC and Cefn Druids players queuing up to take part in a charity match, played at Druids' ground The Rock on Saturday.

The clash was organised by Cefn Druids physio Jon Morris, who has also worked for Wrexham AFC, and was supported by Jaxon's parents Gareth and Danielle.

More than £1,000 was raised, going towards the Team Jaxon fund which helps good causes and charities which supported Jaxon during his fight against cancer.

The Reds' legends team, which included the likes of Andy Morrell, Robin Gibson, Steve Evans, Neil Roberts, SKY Sports presenter Bryn Law and current Druids star Neil Ashton ran out 3-2 winners over a Druids side featuring Lee Phelan, Aled Rowlands and Timmy Edwards.

Jon said that most importantly the day was a huge success.

"It was a very good day", he said.

"This was the second year we've done it and we have agreed this will be an annual event between the Cefn Druids and Wrexham legends teams who have said they will carry on supporting and doing anything they can to help.

"It was great to see both sets of players turn back the clock, the likes of Andy Morrell, Steve Thomas and Neil Roberts for Wrexham.

"They came over to see Jaxon's parents Gareth and Dani which was nice, and they were both very pleased with how it went and we're doing the Chester 10k soon too."

He added: "I want to say a big thank you to everyone who made the day possible, particularly Cefn Druids for hosting the event ,and for allowing us to use the ground without charge.

"We're looking forward to next year's now."
