A FUND-RAISING football tournament was held in memory of a local player who died at the age of 21.

A total of 24 teams took part in the fifth annual Joe Warner Memorial five-a-side tournament.

It was held at Gorefield Playing Field on Saturday.

Wisbech St Mary won for the third successive, beating The Invincibles 1-0 in the final.

The tournament was organised in memory of Joe Warner, from Leverington, who played for teams in the area, and captained Leverington's Six Ringers' team.

Money is raised every year for football clubs that Warner had been involved with.

One of the Warner's friends, Kristian Hunns, who helped to organise the tournament, said: "It was a good day and we had a decent turn-out.

"The organisers will meet soon to see how much money has been raised and to decide where this will be spent.
