Lincolnshire Police were victorious once again at Sincil Bank Stadium in a rematch charity game against Lincolnshire Fire Service.

Kick-off was at 3pm this afternoon at the home of the Imps.

After 2013's match at the Bank, seeing Lincolnshire Police narrowly win on penalties, both teams were fired up for the game being dubbed 'The Rematch'.

The fire and rescue team boasted Grimsby Town legend Stacy Coldicott, members of the England Fire Service football team and a number of players from Lincolnshire's local leagues.

Dave Gilbert, station manager at Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, said: "Having the chance to play at Sincil Bank Stadium for a second time is a fantastic opportunity.

“Any donations to our charities will be greatly appreciated."

Gates opened for the game at 1.30pm and parking was available on South Common.

Entry to the game was free but fans could make a donation to the Fire Fighters Charity and the Police Treatment Centre.

Both teams hope to build on the £300 raised for the charities last year, with the funds helping to provide therapy and support to injured servicemen and their families.
