Football stalwart of the community remembered at charity match
PUBLISHED: 11:16 05 June 2018
A charity football match was held in memory of one of the sport’s community stalwarts.
Friends and team mates were reunited on the pitch in honour of Dudley Smith, who managed numerous different teams at Burnt Hill Rangers FC over the course of two decades.
Mr Smith sadly died on February 1 earlier this year after a battle with prostate cancer and the charity game, held on Sunday, May 27, at Corton playing field, raised money for a prostate cancer charity.
Having been organised by Jonathan Ward, one of the players, the match brought many of the ‘old boys’ and members of the community together to support the worthy cause and remember Mr Smith.
A brilliant day was had by all of those who took part as Hughes romped to a 6-2 victory over Burnt Hill Rangers.
