Sporting entertainment will take centre stage in Lowestoft once more this weekend.

The 'biggest fundraiser' organised by the Taylor High Memorial Fund, will see former team-mates, friends and family unite on the football pitch once more to remember the popular Lowestoft teenager.

Ole Frank and Corton XI will battle it out at Crown Meadow – the home of Lowestoft Town FC – this Sunday.

The memorial fund was set up by 19-year-old Taylor's parents, Elaine and Gary, after his death in a car crash in west Norfolk two years ago.

Since then, it has raised more than £33,500 and donated more than £31,000 to deserving causes across Waveney and Norfolk. The High family opted to keep the fund running as their way of 'passing on Taylor's smile'.

'There is a huge raffle with prizes donated by traders across Lowestoft, Oulton Broad and friends, and there is also the chance to win a 32in television with the lucky programme you will be given on arrival.'
