Third Cameron Scarratt Trophy fixture set

Team Sunderland Men’s Football will face Northumbria Police for the third time in The Cameron Scarratt Trophy in memory of the former University of Sunderland student and detective.

Ford Quarry Hub will play host to the fixture on Monday 17 October that honours detective constable Cameron Scarratt who passed away after a short battle with cancer in 2019.

Just as in 2021, the fixture will be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and The Oddballs Foundation.

Sport Development Officer at Team Sunderland, Laura Hockaday, said: “It’s great to be supporting the Cameron Scarratt Trophy again this year, it’s always an event we look forward to and we’ll continue to support in future years.”

Team Sunderland are the current holders of the trophy after their 4-0 win last year, but the overall record stands at one win a piece due to Northumbria Police’s 5-4 victory in the inaugural matchup in 2019.

Over £1,800 was from the two previous Cameron Scarratt Trophy ties.

The game kicks off at 7.30pm at Ford Quarry Hub with travel being provided by Team Sunderland at 6pm from City Space.

There will be a raffle at the game with items donated by South Shields FC, Tesco and more. You can follow @TeamNPFC on Twitter who will soon provide a link for donations to the selected charities.
