Signed shirts donated by football superstars Gareth Bale and Lionel Messi have helped to raise thousands of pounds for two amateur players who were seriously injured in a crash.
Shaun Whiter lost both of his legs following the incident in Newmarket, while Joey Abbs was also hurt.
40-year-old Jan Adamec from Haverhill was recently sentenced to three years and four months for causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
An auction was held at Cambridge United over the weekend to support the pair, with the shirts from Bale and Messi unsurprisingly proving to be the biggest sellers.
Barcelona hero Messi's jersey went for £2,100, while Bale's Real Madrid shirt fetched £1,600.
The goalkeeper gloves used by Cambridge's Will Norris to save two penalties in their recent win over Accrington Stanely also brought in £1,000.
