Footballers from rival village teams will again take to the field to play in a fundraising match in memory of Nathan Rhodes.

The match between Stockton FC, whom Nathan used to manage and play for, and Bishops Itchington FC will take place at Bishops Itchington Sports Field on Saturday August 13 from 5pm.

Nathan was killed on the Radford Road in Leamington on June 20 last year along with two other young adults Ryan Case, 25, of Stockton, and Emily Jennings, 27, of Warwick, when drunk driver Jamie Riddick of Kineton, crashed the car in which they were all travelling into a tree and a wall.

Riddick was jailed for nine years in January.

The aim of the event is to celebrate Nathan’s life and to raise money and awareness for the road safety charity Brake.

Nathan’s mother Barbara Morgan is appealing for people and businesses to donate prizes to a fundraising raffle which will take place at the event.

She said: “We have been hugely supported by Tesco in that they have given large amount of prizes and are providing us with all the buffet food for after the match and feel it important that they receive a bit of recognition.”
