A football team from Braintree have won the chance to play at Anfield in honour of their terminally ill manager. 

SC Crittall FC, based in Clockhouse Way, Braintree, were visited by football star John Barnes who delivered the good news.

Organiser Barclays have released a promotional video for the competition which captures the moment manager Andy Livermore and his players found out.

The team got nearly 3,000 likes for their team photo on Facebook and will play Hawkins FC in Liverpool at the weekend.
