World Longest Footie Match Record Set

Two teams in West Sussex have set a new world record for the longest ever football match

It was staged in memory of 2 Worthing footballers who died in the Shoreham Aircrash - and another player who died from cardiac arrest.

They played on through thunderstorms, blazing sun and utter exhaustion.

When the final whistle blew they had been on the pitch at Lancing for 4 and a half days.

Money raised will fund a permanent memorial for Matt Grimstone and Jacob Schilt - both killed in the Shoreham Air Disaster - as well as Matt Chaplain who died suddenly in 2013

The final score - 872 goals to 1,009.
