THE Copa Del Bradley Memorial Cup is back this evening (Friday).

The annual charity football match is to commemorate Del Bradley, who died shortly before he was due to retire.

The match will see a team from Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service take on a side from West Mercia Police.

All the proceeds from the match will go to charities including the British Heart Foundation and the Firefighters Charity.

Some of the proceeds will also be going to Flint House, a police rehabilitation centre.

Bromsgrove Sporting will host the charity match at the Victoria Ground.

The game will kick off at 6.30pm and is free to enter, with the funding generated made through the bar and raffle.

HWFRS are the defending champions having won the last Copa Del Bradley 1-0 in 2019 in a match which raised £1,410.68.

This will be the first Copa Del Bradley match since then due to the pandemic.
