Sincil Bank Stadium was the venue as the Red Imps youngsters took on Arsenal’s Under 18 side in a memorial game for a local teenager, Matty Ellis, who was tragically killed in a car crash earlier this year.

And while they went down 1-0 to a Gunners team packed with youth international’s, Damian Froggatt’s team acquitted themselves well in front of a bumper 1400 crowd.

After the final whistle, Dave and Fiona Ellis presented Arsenal with Matty Ellis Memorial trophy which will remain on display at Sincil Bank.
