A memorial match will be played on Sunday in memory of a talented footballer who collapsed and died during a fixture three years ago.

Stuart Hudson, from Dickens Heath, slumped to the ground and died during a game between Silhill and Northfield Village on October 3, 2009.

Despite the efforts of his team mates, the 31-year-old died on the pitch - it later emerged he suffered from a rare heart defect, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

This weekend will see the third annual Stuart Hudson Memorial Match, once again raising money for the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

This year’s game will be played between Silhill Select XI and a team of Stuart’s friends and colleagues, at the Sharmans Cross Road ground. Kick-off is at 11.30am.
