HUNDREDS turned out to support a memorial football match held in memory of Little Downham teenager Jack Ure last Thursday.
More than 600 of Jack’s family and friends packed into the Unwin Ground, home of Ely City Football Club, for the match, which saw a Jack Ure XI captained by Jack’s dad Tony, take on an Ely College XI.
The 18-year-old had just completed his A-level exams at Ely College Sixth Form when he was killed in a three-vehicle collision in New River Bank, Littleport, on June 20. His funeral was held at St Leonard’s Church in Little Downham.
As a lasting tribute to keen sportsman Jack, his friends organised the memorial match which helped raised more than £2,500 for emergency medical charity Magpas.
Courtney Pettifor, who organised the event, said the match went “really, really well” and ended 6-4 to the team from Ely College.
