A fund raising football tournament in Slough inspired by a brave little boy has raised £703 for the charity that will be there for him throughout his life.

Oscar Simpson, eight, suffers from Multiple Pituitary Hormone Deficiency - which means his pituitary gland does not release vital chemicals needed to keep him well and help him recover from injuries.

He is a dedicated fan of Fulham Football Club and on Sunday ex-Fulham players Barry Hayles, Sean Davis and Elvis Hammond rallied round to support the tournament organised by Oscar's mum Gemma who lives with him in Woodlands Park, Maidenhead.

It was raising money for the Pituitary Foundation.

Oscar, who has a season ticket at Fulham also goes to watch Windsor FC with his grandad. It was there that they met Barry Hayles who now coaches the Windsor club where Oscar has been a mascot..

Gemma organised Sunday's tournament at Powerleague in Ragstone Road, Slough.

It attracted 12 football teams and Barry entered his team Hayles FC which won the event, beating co-finalists SuperSexy FC 3-0.

Oscar presented the trophy and prizes to the winning team, which included free entry and a bottle of bubbly for all the players into Scotch Bar, Windsor and a game of footgolf at Richings Park in Iver. Both prizes kindly donated by the companies.

Gemma said: "We’d like to say a massive thank you Manchester United Football Club who kindly donated a signed football to help us raise money at the event, the ball is signed by 15 of the 1st team players. We raffled the ball off by selling 100 tickets. This raised £300.

"The day was a great success and we raised a fantastic amount of £703.15p for The Pituitary Foundation.

"A lot of the footballers asked if we could make it a yearly event so this is something we will be looking into. Everyone said they really enjoyed the tournament.

"Unfortunately Pituitary Foundation FC were knocked out after the first five games but all the lads played so well and put a great effort in supporting the foundation. Everyone said they really enjoyed playing and had a great day."
