St Albans football fans raised £1,000 for two charities at an end of season friendly.
A team managed by former St Albans City FC player and manager Kevin Mudd took on a team under former player Paul Hakim for a Legends Charity Match at Clarence Park on May 11.
It was in aid of both Youth Talk, which provides confidential counselling for young people in St Albans, and national charity Prostate Cancer UK.
Chief executive of Youth Talk, David Barker, said: "Our vital work relies on the tremendous generosity and goodwill of our local community and our partnership with St Albans City FC is not only helping to bring in desperately needed funds but is also helping us and wider society to bring the issue of mental health out of the shadows."
The Hakim team triumphed 3-0 in the charity match.
