The annual Tickly Come Dancing fundraiser was held by Nailsea & Tickenham Football Club.

Nailsea & Tickenham Football Club held their annual fundraiser Tickly Come Dancing.

With a 300-strong crowd, five local couples battled it out for the Tickly Trophy. Bristol City legend and record appearance holder Louis Carey was again among the judging panel alongside West End star Richard Wood and Bristol Hippodrome choreographer Courtney Jackson.

Chairman Bob Gregory said: “This is a great night for the local community, we really appreciate the fantastic support our football club generates and the funds raised go directly back into improving facilities at the club, including going towards the purchase of a new public defibrillator at Fryth Way.

“We will also be installing additional goals with nets on the field next to our main pitch for anybody to use at their leisure.

Friend of the club Louis Carey said: “I am really grateful to be involved in such a great local football club who clearly have some exciting plans for the future. Not only is it a great night for Nailsea, but raises important funds to help the club improve their facilities, which ultimately will be used in the future by young players coming through from junior football.”

The winners on the night were Charlie Ashton and Holly Edwards from Nailsea.

On the pitch, the first team also had a successful day running out 7-2 winners against Bridgwater Town Res in the Somerset Cup.
