CRICKETERS raised money in memory of a sports-mad teenager at the weekend.
Huw Thatcher, 15, collapsed and died on a football pitch three months ago.
The Holmfirth teenager lost his life to an undiagnosed brain aneurysm.
His family set up the Huw Thatcher Trust to support charities which work with people with brain injuries.
Upperthong Cricket Club organised a family fun day on Saturday to help raise money for the trust.
Teams from Upperthong, Holmfirth, Meltham, Slaithwaite and Thongsbridge cricket clubs took part in the competition.
Huw’s dad Nick, 49, was a member of the Upperthong team.
“This is a very happy and a very sad day for me,” he said.
“I can picture Huw out here this afternoon enjoying the company of the girls more than the boys, play-fighting and having as many hot dogs as he can get away with.
“But I’m very moved to see how many members of the cricketing community have come here.
“Doing positive things to remember Huw helps a little bit.”
