A football match has been planned to raise money in memory of a St Neots teenager.

Jacob Crawshaw, 19, died in a car crash last year the day after watching the club he supports, Luton Town, play Millwall.

Jacob's friends then planned a football match in his honour to raise money for the Road Victims Trust.

Friend and organiser Harrison Clark said: "I felt like I wanted to do something more, and not everyone could make the funeral, so we were just discussing it and then all together we came up with the idea of a football match."

The match will be played at St Neots Town FC, a club Jacob had a scholarship with, on May 7 with a 4 pm kick-off.

Entrance will be £2 for adults and £1 for concessions and under 16s.

More than £1000 has been raised online, and there will be a charity raffle on the day.
