Aiden Lowe, from Beccles, was killed in a crash on the A143 near Gillingham on September 10, when the white BMW he was driving lost control and was in collision with a tree.

With touching tributes paid to the 23-year-old from across football and cricket clubs in Beccles, Bungay and Lowestoft – where Mr Lowe played – his contribution to the success of Bungay Town FC was celebrated on Saturday (September 23).

The Black Dogs' first game at the Maltings Pavilion since Mr Lowe's death saw the club remember Aiden before and during the Anglian Combination Division One match with Hindringham, and the reserves division four clash with Aylsham Reserves.

With a special four-team minute's silence impeccably observed prior to the start of the match, Bungay Town's first team lined up before the game wearing Aiden's number.
