Eight teams of footballers will be playing non-stop for five hours on Saturday to raise money for charity.

The 5-a-side tournament will start at 2pm at Guiseley AFC, with all proceeds going to the Murray Watson Trust.

Murray was a promising footballer who died of cancer aged only 19 in August 2013. His former Guiseley School friends, who have since gone on to training and employment, have continued to stage events to raise money in his name.

The Trust helps to fund a wheelchair football team in Leeds and also sponsors individuals with various disabilities. It has also helped in funding reconstruction of schools hit by earthquakes in Nepal.

Events, face painting, food and drink are available throughout the day

People around the world are marking Earth Hour this evening. People in Britain are expected to join in at 8.30pm... and then they will switch their clocks forward tonight as British Summer Time begins.

Get ready to turn your clocks forward... but before that expect things to get much darker
