A memorial match for Jack
A FOOTBALL match will take place this weekend in memory of Jack Savage, who died in a car accident in May.
Wroughton and Croft - both former teams of the popular youngster - will meet at the Weir Field in a remembrance fixture tomorrow (2pm).
Savage died aged just 20 when a car driven by one of his best friends collided with the rear of a lorry on the A419.
Tomorrow’s match is supported by Jack’s family and his father Steve is due to play a part in the game, which will see mostly younger players turn out.
The match has been organised by Wroughton treasurer Kev Cook and secretary Stef Kuczynski and there will be a collection for Wiltshire Air Ambulance during proceedings.
After the football family and friends can continue to remember Jack at the Fox & Hounds in the evening, where musical acts will perform.
Jack was a popular lad who was doing well for himself, which makes what happened even sadder,” said Kuczynski. “The family are all for this match going ahead and I’m sure it will be a competitive game.”
