Three businesses have helped raised hundreds of pounds for an armed forces charity.
Weston Football Club, NK Sports and Somerset Signing & Framing Co have managed to raise £750 for the Royal British Legion.
They managed the feat by auctioning off five shirts from their FA Cup first round game against Wrexham Football Club.
The game was played on November 11 on Remembrance Day.
In the FA Cup game, Weston lost 2-0 to their opponents, conceding two second-half goals against their National League visitors.
