Celebrities took to the pitch in a charity match to celebrate 25 years of a Watford FC charity's work in the community.

Watford FC's Community Sports and Education Trust held a charity match, with the likes of Calum Best and EastEnders’s Jake Wood at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Despite a tough match and the score going 7:6 it was Calum Best’s side, clad in the away kit, that took home the Community Trust trophy.

Singer and pop star Stevi Ritchie, who played for the away team was a noticeable influence on the crowd, although it’s unlikely he touched the ball throughout the entire match.

During half time, Harry Hornet, Watford FC’s mascot, broke his arm while taking a penalty.

The hornet sent out this tweet after going to Watford General Hospital:

Fan favourite Tommy Mooney came with the hope to add his tally of 65 career Watford goals when he joined the squad on May 12.

Former Hornets captain Gavin Mahon said that he was looking to emulate his success from the 2005/2006 promotion season.

Although not playing, goalkeepers Tony Coton and Steve Sherwood were present to lend their support to the players.

Watford FC’s Community Sports and Education Trust is a charity operating in Hertfordshire and the London boroughs of Harrow and Hillingdon.

They help more than 158,000 people a year get involved in sport participation, social inclusion, health, education and community facilities.
