TWO teams will fight it out this weekend in a pre-season football match in memory of a well-known Andover player.

Arms Athletic and Ludgershall will play for the Daddsey Memorial Trophy in the inaugural match at New Street football ground, Foxcotte Park, Charlton, on Sunday, August 13.

The game will be in memory of the late Nicholas Dadds who was a talented and popular striker for Andover New Street.

In fitting tribute to him, his grandfather David Duke has sculpted the trophy which has been cast in solid bronze at Project Workshops in Quarley.

The trophy is inscribed with the number 18, the number in which he played under, and the base is made of turned ash after Nick’s brother Ashley.

Mr Duke said: “All of Nick’s, or Daddsey as he was popularly known by fellow team players, managers and countless young friends hope people will come and support this worthy event in memory of an amazingly popular and talented young man, together with and in association with, the very significant, PAPYRUS charity.”

Kick off is at 1pm and admission to the football ground is £5, with all proceeds going to PAPYRUS who work to prevent suicides in young people.
