A CHARITY football match in memory of a Clydebank teenager who passed away will hopefully become an annual event.

Organisers thanked the friends and family of Connor Luke, 17, who turnout out at Holm Park at the weekend for the fundraising match.

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

Allan Macphie, 16, a friend who organised the event, told the Post: "It was the start of something special.

"The match was incredible and was such a good turn out for a special game.

"The goal was to raise as much money for Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity as we could and I think we smashed it. We will find out more about how much we have raised in the next few days.

"The charity were also at the event so I would like to thank them for coming along. I would also like to thank all the supporters for making it a day to remember. The game was incredible and I hope to arrange it every year in Connor's memory."

The teams made up of friends and family played as Rangers v Celtic, reported Allan. Rangers opened the scoring and by half time it was 3-3. The final score was 13-12 to Celtic.

Celtic scores were: Ethan Duncan with four, Taylor Halpin with five, Declan Smith with three, Aaron Smith with one. Goal-scores for Rangers were: James McCabe with three, Mitchell Dickson with four, Allan Macphie with one, Mitchell O'Toole with one, Jamie Smith with one, Kieran Davis with one, Paul McArthur with one.

Allan added: "I would like to thank the directors of Yoker Athletic and Clydebank FC and their pitch man for letting us use Holm Park.

"The match was reffed by Jaime Russell who put on a really good shift. There was also tombola and a raffle that was held at this event and that was managed by Connor's mum, Carol O'Reilly, and her sisters Donna and Michelle."

The money raised for the hospital is a tribute to Connor's two-year-old cousin who passed away from cancer.
