Four of the region’s top football clubs went head-to-head to remember a popular member of the sporting community this week.

Ely City, Isleham United, Littleport Town and Little Downham kicked off the third instalment of the Stuart Seekings Cup on Monday – a tournament put together in memory of footballer Stuart Seekings who lost his battle with cancer in 2013 aged 30.

An Ely XI took on Isleham in the first game of the tournament and easily progressed to Friday’s final thanks to a 4-1 win, with goals coming from Shaun Calvey, Tom Thulborn, Alex Brown and Stamford Gemwa.

Josh Almond netted Isleham’s consolation goal.

The Robins will meet Little Downham in the final, which is to be held at Ely’s Unwin Ground at 7.45pm, after they hammered Littleport 7-0 last night.
