A TEENAGE Newport County fanatic has used his side’s upcoming FA Cup clash with Manchester City to help raise money for charity.

Evan Dunn, 14, has auctioned off one of the two tickets he bought for the historic game, raising £175 in the process.

Evan said he was initially thinking of taking a friend to watch the fifth-round tie but decided that he would use the money to honour his late sister,

Emily Clark had beaten cancer twice before she died in 2016.

Speaking of his decision, Evan’s mum Donna said: “I’m immensely proud of him.

“How many 14-year-olds can you imagine doing something like this?

“He’s done amazingly well with his fundraising.”

The family have been tireless in their charitable efforts since Emily died, organising countless charity runs and other events.

Evans, who was extremely close to his sister , will also join his family at the starting line for the Newport 10k.

The FA Cup ticket was only advertised as being for sale for a 24-hour period.

“We knew if we left it up for longer we could have made more money,” said Mrs Dunn.

“But that isn’t what Emily would have wanted.”

The family’s fundraising efforts are in aid of a proposed medical library at Maggie's Cancer Centre in Cardiff.
