Worcester City led Coventry City 1-0 when Nathan Vaughan saved Reda Johnson's penalty at the Ricoh Arena

Worcester City goalkeeper Nathan Vaughan has sold the shirt he wore in the FA Cup first round win at Coventry City for £508 in a charity auction.

The 33-year-old saved a first-half Reda Johnson penalty as Worcester beat the Sky Blues 2-1 earlier this month.

Proceeds from the auction are to be donated to the Poppy Appeal.

Former England goalkeeper David James auctioned off his football memorabilia earlier this week but sold two shirts for less than non-league Vaughan's top.

While an England shirt worn by James in 2002 fetched £672, a Liverpool goalkeeper's jersey worn during the 1995-96 season sold for around £160 while a Portsmouth jersey from 2008 went for £480.

Worcester City travel to League One Scunthorpe in the second round of the Cup on Sunday 7th December.
