An amateur football club has raised more than £1500 for two asylum seekers players who were caught up in the West George Street stabbing. 

One of the players was seriously injured in the attack on the Park Inn hotel, while the other was left "very distressed" by the horrific attack. 

John Street AFC set up a Just Giving page to show support to the two men after the incident. 

Six people were stabbed at the city centre hotel on Friday afternoon, including a police officer, two hotel staff members and three asylum seekers.

The attacker Badreddin Abadlla Adam was shot dead by armed officers who were raced to the scene. 

The two amateur players who were caught up in the attack joined John Street AFC recently after being in the country for a short time, fundraiser organiser Russell Hughes revealed. 

He told how the two asylum seekers do not have football boots or and training gear. 

Russell wrote: "I'd love to raise the cash to pay their training, games on a Saturday and get them the boots and gear they require to show that people care and welcome them to our city and team John Street AFC."

After donations blew past the target of £1000, John Street AFC took to Twitter to thank everyone who donated.
