Lovenkrands raises thousands

Newcastle United striker Peter Lovenkrands has raised more than 20 thousands pounds for the Alzheimer's Society through an online auction. The Danish forward lost his father Bent, to the illness two years ago.

He's been offering items from his Magpies' teammates via a fundraising page on the website JustGiving. They included Tim Kruhl's signed goal keeper gloves and a match worn number nine shirt from Papiss Cisse.
