Sam Jaggard and Kathryn Rivett were passengers in a car in Gillingham when it was involved in the fatal collision.

In memory of the pair, a charity football match was arranged between Mr Jaggard's friends, and friends of his brother Tom.

The event returned for it's eighth year last month at Kirkley and Pakefield FC.

Mr Jaggard's mother Chris Lea said: "The weather was really nice and all of our friends and family who've turned up. Some of my family from Australia are here for the first time too.
