Football Teams Raise Money In Teen's Memory

Thursday October 3 2013




TWO young football teams raised money in memory of a teenager who died from a brain tumour.

Popular Brierley teenager Leah Bella Pearson, 18, died in June and on September 8 Brierley Cubs Under 12s took part in a memorial match against Royston Dynamos Under 12s at Brierley Park.

Leah's dad, Nigel Pearson, is manager of the team and Leah's brother, Corey, is the captain.

A minute's silence was observed by both teams prior to kick off.

Brierley Cubs won the march 8-1. A raffle, auction and penalty shoot-out was held on the day and £546 was raised for the Teenage Cancer Unit at Weston Park Hospital.
