As well as his Sunday League role, Tony also managed and played for a number of local teams, including Tap & Spile and Eastfield FC.

The match will be played at Ayton's Garth End Road pitch on Sunday July 25, 10.30am kick-off, with a raffle and football cards being sold in the Ayton Sports clubhouse after the match to raise further funds on top of subs paid by each player.

Proceeds from the game will help Tony’s family with costs towards his funeral, anyone wanting to donate can do so on the gofundme page named In Memory of Tony Walker.
