A special football match is being held to remember a former Ipswich Town Disabled FC member, at Felixstowe & Walton FC, on September 21.

Justin Earley, passed away this year, aged just 28, after suffering a heart attack, following an infection.

Justin, who was born with a defective heart valve, never allowed this to get the better of him and lived for the game of football, being an avid Blues follower, as well as supporting local clubs such as Needham Market.

Known as JJ, he signed for Ipswich Town Disabled FC back during its founding season in 2003 and helped the club to become a success.

Funds raised from the match and raffle will be split and donated to The British Heart Foundation and a benevolent fund for Justin’s mum.

Admission is £3 for adults, £1 children (under 10). Tickets are now available on the gate.
