The clash between Moray Mental Health FC and Dr Gray's Hospital finished in a 2-2 draw at the Highland League venue on Friday, March 15.

More importantly, the event raised awareness of mental health and Highlands and Moray support charity Mikeysline.

And it also raised more than £900 which will be shared between Mikeysline and the Friends of Dr Gray's.

Matty Slinger, one of the founders of Moray Mental Health FC, said: "It was another great night and we have to thank all our sponsors and people who turned up on the night."

Mikeysline is a suicide prevention charity which was created following the deaths of two close friends within 48 hours of each other.

They have 1 to 1 support available at Hives in Inverness, Alness, Nairn and Tain, and also have a mobile hive.

You can also access non-judgmental support from 6-10pm Sunday to Thursday, and 7pm-7am, Friday and Saturday. Text 07786 207 755.
