Arthur Johnson, who has been a Liberal Democrat town councillor on the Pyle Hill ward for nine years, was sworn in as mayor in May.
On Sunday, Mr Johnson dusted off his football boots to play in a charity game for the Robbie the Robot Appeal.
Robbie the Robot performs prostate cancer operations at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading.
The charity match was competed between Mr Johnson’s colleagues at Dynamic Parcel Delivery in Newbury and Maidenhead Tigers at the City Playground off Andover Road.
Mr Johnson (pictured), who used to play five-a-side football for Sandleford Social club and refereed in the Basingstoke and District Football League for seven years, refereed the first half of the game before playing in midfield for Maidenhead Tigers in the second half.
Dynamic Parcel Delivery won the game 9-3.
