11:20am Thursday 1st August 2013 in News
Young and talented footballers locked horns with footballing superstars of the future to remember a teenager.
Peacehaven Youth under-18s took to the pitch for the charity game against Arsenal Youth under-16s on Saturday.
The match was organised in memory of Connor Saunders, the teenager from Woodingdean, who died after being punched in April last year.
More than 400 people turned up to watch the game where the Gunners romped to an 8-0 victory.
Both sides wore bibs that read “one punch can kill” in reference to the incident which led to Connor’s death.
Arsenal also donated a signed first team shirt to the club.
