Another day, another draw as Cliftonville and Linfield heroes of yesteryear played out an entertaining encounter at Solitude this afternoon.

Less than 24 hours after the sides had contested a goalless Danske Bank Premiership battle at the same venue, the Clubs’ Over-35s teams went head-to-head in a special fundraiser in memory of former Reds player Jerry Thompson, with photographer Damien Toolan on hand to capture the action.

McMullan and Larry McMahon were the Reds goalscorers, with Ivan Sproule and John Martin on target for the Blues in an eye-catching contest that saw a number of famous faces roll back the years for a fine cause that you can show your own support to with an online donation.
