AFC Telford United beat Manchester's FC United 3-0 in Saturday's benefit match at the New Bucks Head.

The game was held to raise funds for Jamie Turner, a Man Utd fan from Shropshire who was attacked and seriously injured last year.

His namesake Jimmy Turner scored twice to put the Unibond Premier League side into the lead.

Steve Pope scored Telford's third and final goal from the spot to seal the win in front of a crowd of 1,379.
