A CHARITY football match is being organised in memory of a Clydebank teenager who tragically passed away last month.

Connor Luke, a former Knightswood Secondary and St Peter the Apostle pupil, died at a flat in Partick on September 10.

One of the 17-year-old's close friends Allan Macphie has organised the charity event to be held at Holm Park on Sunday, October 27.

All money raised on the day will go towards the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity in tribute to Connor's two-year-old cousin who passed away from cancer.

Allan welcomed Connor when he joined St Peter's in 2015 and described him as funny, caring, and silly.

The 16-year-old went on to say: "I spoke to Connor during a break and we clicked in the space of a few sentences. Before I knew it, we were best mates. He would lighten anyone's day up with his smile and he would put himself before anyone.

"Me and Connor were like brothers, I stayed with him for six weeks during the summer and it was the best summer of my life. We would always go fishing."

The Rangers vs Celtic match has been set up because Connor loved Rangers and playing football with his friends.

And fans of the football team held a minute-long applause for the teen during a Rangers vs Livingston match last month, also thanks to Allan.

Carol O'Reilly, Connor's mum, told the Post: "He was a special boy that would have done anything to help anyone and we all want to make him proud."

Carol and her sister Donna will be attending the charity match that kicks off at 2pm.

Donna told the Post: "Connor was the best nephew and the most amazing big cousin to my kids.

"His death has left a massive gap in our hearts and life's that no one can fill, but by keeping his memory alive it gives us comfort as this is what Connor would of wanted.

"The impact Connor had in so many peoples life's shows just what an amazing person he was and I couldn’t of been prouder of my nephew. He is loved so much and missed dearly."

Tickets for the upcoming event will be priced at £5 for over 16s to watch and £1 for under 16s.
