Last year's match

Max and Amy Rippington are organising another football match this month in memory of their father, Peter, who was killed in the school ski trip crash in France last year.

While not a charity fundraiser like last year’s event (pictured above), they hope to boost the coffers of the venue, Alvechurch Football Club, with which Peter had strong connections.

The match kicks off at 6.30pm on Saturday July 20. There is a £1 entry fee and a fixed drinks price at the bar of £2.50.

Max told The Village: “This year, Amy and I decided to make the match a memorial rather than a charity event.

“The one exception is a small £1 charge on the gate which we will be giving to Alvechurch Football Club.

“The club meant a lot to Dad and we would like to give back as they have been so kind in hosting the match two years running.”
