A weekend match at The Brandywell featured Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill and Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill in charge of select sides that included Gault.

Fund-raising efforts in recent months have allowed Farren, the former Derry City and Glenavon striker, to visit Mexico in search of specialist treatment on a brain tumour.

“I was delighted to be able to support such a worthy cause,” said Gault. “It was an honour to represent Portadown for the charity match and my thoughts are with Mark and his family.”

Other names involved with connections to Portadown included former players Neil McCafferty, Gary Hamilton and Paul Millar.

The game was staged as a charity match between a Northern Ireland XI and Derry City XI.
