Ex-England stars in Keith Alexander benefit match

Benefit match
Some former England players took part in the match

A star-studded benefit match has been held in memory of ex-Lincoln City manager and Grimsby Town player Keith Alexander who died in March.

Former England players Paul Ince, Les Ferdinand, Paul Merson, Des Walker and Lee Sharpe were among those taking part in the game at Sincil Bank.

Their team played against a Keith Alexander XI including members of Lincoln's 2003 play-off final squad.

More than 1,000 supporters bought tickets for the game.

Money raised from the event will go to the family of Alexander, who died suddenly aged 53.
