Torrential rain caused a 24-hour charity football match for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation to be cancelled.
Match officials were forced to cancel the game 13 hours into the game at Gateshead International Stadium.
But the match raised a massive £5,400 for the charity.
Organiser Ian Carr, from Gateshead, said "We’re disappointed not to have played the full 24-hours but completely understand the decision to stop play.
"We kicked off at 6pm and things were going well despite a bit of drizzle until about 1am.
"That’s when the rain really started coming down and it was pretty unpleasant.
"There was torrential rain for hours and it showed no sign of letting up. Eventually the St John’s Ambulance and match officials decided enough was enough.
"We were all feeling a bit down at first but now I think we’re all proud to have achieved what we did."
Liz Luff, from the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, said: "The players are understandably disappointed but the weather was awful overnight and they showed great commitment to keep going as long as they did."
Sir Bobby and Lady Elsie launched the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation in 2008 and has since raised over £4 million to help find more effective treatments for cancer.
