Tributes were paid to a 21-year-old from Letchworth, who died last year, at a charity football match earlier this month.

Aiden Godfrey passed away from a diabetic coma, with charity and his former team Feed Up Warm Up facing off against a team from Letchworth Eagles FC, the club he played for as a youngster, on Sunday, June 4.

Feed Up Warm Up ran out 6-1 winners at Pixmore, with charity founder Shane Cole pleased to provide Aiden with a fitting tribute.

"The reason why we hosted it where we did and played against who we did, was because when Aiden was growing up, he played for Letchworth Eagles," said Shane. 

"We had all his old coaches playing against our team and it was a really good day.

"We had a couple of hundred people turn up to watch and Feed Up Warm Up won 6-1.

"We also unveiled a memorial bench for him thanks to fundraising. It was a real fitting tribute to him.

"He was a well-loved, cheeky chappy, who was always smiling, and I had the privilege of knowing him personally for many years."

A bar, barbecue, activities and a stall were put on throughout the day, raising money for Feed Up Warm Up, a charity which supports the homeless across Hertfordshire, and Diabetes UK.
