This has to be one of the most heroic and inspiring football matches in history.

This afternoon 36 amateur players completed the world's longest game ever - 108 hours of goals, saves, shots and tackles, and a lot more blisters besides. The final score 872 - 1,009.

The match was staged in memory of three Sussex players including Jacob Schilt and Matt Grimstone, killed in the Shoreham aircrash.
