It was a fun game more than anything else and it was made more so by Paul Gascoigne, who let his comedic talents run free. He was making all sorts of gags, from wearing outsized clown shoes to taking a penalty kick by putting his right foot around the back of his left to score !! It was a marvellous night and the crowd who turned up to see it were treated to a very enjoyable match and the money went to help Danny in his last few years of life.|
