YOUNG footballers in St Neots took part in a tournament to remember a parent who died last year.
On Saturday, six U10 teams from Priory Parkside competed in the event, which was a tribute to Colin Kent, who died in his sleep, aged just 34.
Mr Kent suffered heart, back and leg problems following an industrial accident. His son, Callum, is captain of Priory J.
More than 60 footballers took part in the seven-a-side competition and Craig Jallal, manager of Priory J, said more than 100 people were present.

Michelle Kent presented the winning team, Priory N, with the Colin Kent Cup, bought by Priory J to honour her husband.
Mr Kent was a regular behind the goal at training sessions, offering advice to inexperienced goalkeepers. His widow is equally supportive of the team, cutting out match reports from The Hunts Post.
The organisers had help from several parents, including Mark Inskip, who refereed the final.
It is hoped the tribute tournament will become an annual event.
