Thousands of fans flocked to Barnet FC on Sunday to support a special charity match to mark World Refugee Day.

An Arsenal Legends XI, managed by Olympic double gold medallist and Gunners fan Mo Farah, drew 1-1 with a World Refugee XI, managed by Fabrice Muamba.

Organisers Tony Adams and Tom Watt invited a number of familiar faces with Ian Wright, Ray Parlour, Gus Caeser, Michael Thomas, Paul Davis, David Hillier, Vince Bartram, Perry Groves, Stephen Hughes and Adrian Clarke all in action for the Legends team - while Mo himself had a run-out too.

Arsenal's community department were involved in the event and their close work with the refugee organisation, Freedom From Torture, saw representatives from FFT play for the World Refugee XI.

Premier League referee Mark Halsey and two top-flight assistant referees officiated.
