A charity football match was a fitting tribute to commemorate the life of a former Royston sporting champion.
The match between the ‘Mighty’ Heath Sports FC and Royston Town FC ‘Legends’ was arranged in the name of former player of both teams Paul Webb, who died in October.
Before kick-off, there was an emotional one minute applause for the gifted player.
Paul’s close friend Jason Mannion, who organised the event, said: “It was a great night where Paul’s friends and family came together to show how much Paul is loved, missed and will always be remembered.”
The game resulted in a hard fought 1-1 draw.

Paul’s wife Jo Webb said: “It was overwhelming to see so many people turn out for Paul and our family. He raved about his football days and I understand why. Everyone was lovely and so generous.”
