Angmering Football Club will defend the Gavin Crossley Memorial Shield against Clymping Reserves, their annual curtain raiser to the season, to raise money for Headway the brain injury association charity. Headway is a charity set up to give help and support to people affected by brain injury. To promote understanding of all aspects of brain injury and to provide information, support and services to people with a brain injury, their families and carers.
Gavin Crossley, 24, was driving home from Warnham C of E Primary School in Warnham, Horsham, where he was on teacher training placement, on 12 December 2007 when his car collided with a tree. He was taken to Redhill Hospital in Surrey and later transferred to St George's Hospital in Tooting, where he died on December 22. Gavin played for Angmering Football Club, and also represented Clymping, he also gave up his free time to referee youth matches at Storrington Vipers and planned to complete his referee qualifications.
The game will be kindly hosted by Wick Football Club at Crabtree Park with kick off scheduled for 7:30 pm on Wednesday 25 August and a £2 admission fee will be charged on the gate as all the proceeds from this will go towards the charity. Gavin’s father Chris will attend the game to present the trophy to the winning team in memory of his son. Please come along in support of the two teams and this worthwhile cause as we remember a local football lad who is sadly missed by all.
