Supporters are being encouraged to attend a memorial sports match in memory of former Longridge High School pupil Adam Wright this Friday, June 28.

Teams from Longridge Cricket Club and Longridge Hockey Club are playing a hockey match against each other at Longridge Sports Centre at 7.30pm, gathering from 7pm.

The match will be followed by a bit of a “do” at Longridge Cricket Club – again to which all are welcome, starting around 9pm – and at which there will be various games and raffles to fundraiser for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Adam, who died in tragic circumstances in 2011, was a Liverpool Football Club supporter and with the emphasis on “You’ll never walk alone” friends and Paul’s sister Becky – who are playing in the match – want to make sure Adam lives on in people’s memories.
