World boxing champion Anthony Crolla and former Liverpool great David Johnson were amongst the guests at a testimonial dinner for retiring Lancaster City skipper Neil Marshall on Friday night.

A packed Lancaster Town Hall paid tribute to the central defender who has brought down the curtain on a 10-year career due to an on-going battle with cancer.
