A MEMORIAL football match was recently held by Pembroke Borough FC to celebrate the life of a former player, Adam Turner, who tragically passed away in 2016.

The day was a fitting tribute, and, as a result of a successful raffle, the club is donating £500 to the Samaritans.

The game, which saw a minute’s applause conducted by referee James Hollyer, was a thrilling affair with visitors Gwawr FC, formerly Aberdare Town, winning 6-5 with a goal in the last two minutes.

All at the club and the family would like to thank the following for their very kind donations: Brammer, Austwel, Simon Safety & Lifting Centre, Valero Energy, Dingbro Ltd, Emerson Process Management, Total Lubricants, Micron Hydraulics Ltd, South Hook LNG, Oakwood theme park, Pembroke Castle, The Lost Coins, Beggars Reach Hotel, Scarletts rugby club, Cleddau Bridge Hotel, Bartletts Engineering, Big Brums, Celtic Wines, The Baytree, Flowserve, Heatherton leisure park, Valvenco Ltd, Celtic Haven Resort, PMA, Pirtek Ltd, Cape PLC, Hoerbiger UK Ltd, Weir, The Potting Shed, Manobier Garden Centre, Dresser Rand/Siemans, Monddi Dimond Press, MRC Transmark Ltd, R&M Electrical Group Ltd, Sulzer UK Ltd, Pembroke Power Station, Eriks, Councillor Paul Harris, John Crane UK Ltd, E&C Rewinds & Machining, Milford Haven Port Authority, Ashdale Engineering & Lifting Services, Bluestone, Veolia & Watson Fuels.
