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.

The night, which was also attended my Mayor of Lancaster Robert Redfern and featured an auction and performance from comedian Mark Langley, raised nearly £8,500 for Marshall and his family.

Crolla, the WBA world lightweight champion, also presented the City legend with a signed shirt from his testimonial against a Liverpool Legends side.
