Team mates of a 23-year-old footballer who took his own life last month have taken to the pitch for a tournament in his honour.
Hewett Old Boys FC organised the charity football tournament in memory of team mate Callum Speck, who died in hospital in Norwich after being found at his home in Norwich.
The five-a-side event was raising money for mental health charity Mind, with an auction following the matches to fundraise for the 23-year-old's family.
Organiser Callum Wiley said the event had been a huge success, with one Barcelona shirt selling for more than £400 in the charity auction.
He said: "We all feel very proud of how today went. The turn out was better than we could have imagined and I put that down to how popular Callum was. Mental health is an issue we can all relate to and that came through."
