Pic Special: Entertainers v Invincibles

Some of the greatest players to have graced Tyneside over the past two decades took to the St. James' Park pitch on Wednesday night to honour Steve Harper.

And that wasn't the end of the superstars as a Newcastle United Legends teams faced AC Milan Glorie - a side made up of a collection of the Rossoneri's favourites - all in aid of charity.

A near-capacity stadium was treated to some classic battles, including Alan Shearer against Franco Baresi, David Ginola versus Paolo Maldini and Les Ferdinand against Alessandro Costacurta.

While the match itself was goalless at full-time, it certainly didn't lack incident or excitement, with Andrew Cole striking the inside of the post and Faustino Asprilla seeing a header at the Gallowgate End ruled out for offside.

It was left to a penalty shoot-out to decide the contest, with Milan triumphing 2-1 from the spot.

And Club Photographer Serena Taylor was in the thick of things before, during and after the charity clash, which will benefit the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, the Newcastle United Foundation and the Great North Children's Hospital.
