A bumper crowd of 1,450, a goal feast, and more than £15,000 raised for a well deserved cause - 'Del's match' on Saturday was an undoubted success.
As well as those who took part, the game for Edgware Town joint manager Del Deanus, who was recently diagnosed with the terminal illness motor neurone disease, was also supported by countless players, officials and supporters of many local clubs, as well as many family groups.
The football itself was of a high order, with ex-Arsenal and England ace Paul Merson giving a masterclass of midfield play for the Professional/Celebrity Dream Team.
Ex-Tottenham and QPR legend Les Ferdinand proved he can still torment defences, capping a fine performance with a deftly headed goal, while former QPR star Marc Bircham also netted with a cracking volley.
The Non League All Stars team also had their moments in an enjoyable match.
Wealdstone striker Peter Dean notching two good goals, scoring one of them with a neat overhead kick.
And Del Deanus's Edgware managerial partner Steve Newing blasted home a typical blockbuster - then spent the rest of the evening talking about it.
Other local stars among those in action for the Non League team were Harrow Borough skipper Wayne
Walters and teammate Jamie Lawrence, Wembley player manager Ian Bates, Wealdstone's Ryan Ashe and Edgware's Fergus Moore, Richard Morton and Rob Blackburne.
Despite fielding 15 players at one stage - seemingly unnoticed by referee Will Smeulders - the celebrity team couldn't get the better of the non league outfit, who edged home by 6-4.
An auction of football memorabilia afterwards helped boost money raised.
