Memorial match for Dylan to become annual fixture

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News, Sports News

FRIENDS who staged a charity football match in tribute to a 12-year-old boy who died from a viral condition are to make it an annual event.

Players came from all over the country to take part in Sunday’s game which helped to raise almost £2,000 in memory of Dylan Day.

The youngster, from Cellarhead, died in January days after developing sepsis triggered by a strain of flu B.

A fund-raising initiative set up in his memory now stands at almost £20,000 and proceeds from the match, along with an auction at the Windmill pub in Werrington, will be added to the pot.
