The friends of a football-mad roofer who died in a car crash four years ago are coming together to put on a charity game.

The Carl Parsons Memorial Game, in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support, takes place on Friday, September 12 at Gorefield Sports Pavilion.

Walsoken father-of-two Carl Parsons, who played for Emneth Spartans, was just 25 years old when he died in a car crash in Berkshire in 2010.

As well as the football match, there will be a raffle, bouncy castle and face painting, plus a licensed bar and music until late.

Gates open at 4.30pm, with kick-off at 5.45pm, and runs until late.
