A memorial football match has been held in honour of a well-known Skegness solicitor and much-loved father and grandfather who died last year.
Peter Downing died suddenly in August, aged 71. A senior partner at Frearsons, he had worked for the firm for more than 40 years.
Away from work, for the previous two years Mr Downing had refereed a football match between ex-Skegness Grammar School pupils, including his son Alex.
Last Saturday, the game was played again, but this time, the teams played in memory of Mr Downing – contesting the Peter Downing Memorial Trophy.
Alex, 36, thanked those who organised the event, friends Chris Perry and Eddie Johnson, and all those who took part, adding: “It was quite emotional, but it felt nice to be remembering my dad.”
The game ended 4-4, with the teams leaving it as an honourable draw, Alex said.
The trophy was presented to Alex and his younger brother (and hat-trick scorer) Jack.
