A CHARITY football game will take place on Wednesday in memory of a young footballer who tragically passed away last year.

Shaw Lane AFC's Daniel Wilkinson died after collapsing on the pitch away at Brighouse last September. He was described as a ‘lovely lad and a top defender.’

On Wednesday night, Shaw Lane AFC will play Hull City U23s at new ground Sheerian Park in aid of the Daniel Wilkinson Foundation.

Then on Friday, they'll take on Brighouse Town away from home in the Daniel Wilkinson Memorial Game.
