Two years ago, Stuart Seekings lost his life aged 30 to cancer. He was a talented footballer and played for both Littleport and Ely.

In his memory, teams representing Littleport, Ely City, Isleham and Little Downham competed in a three day event raising £427 for the Brain Tumour Charity.

On Thursday, at Littleport Leisure Centre, Ely City beat Littleport Town 3-1.

Stuart’s mother Julie Lewis curtailed her holiday to jet in specially to present the cup to the winning team.

Littleport Town’s Jamie Gayfer said after the match: “Stu played for both sides so it was fitting that they both met in the final.”
