Old university friends of a man killed in Gwynedd played a football match on Saturday in his memory.

Henry Esin, also known as Henry Ayabowei, was a well-known footballer who turned out for several teams in the area.

The 27-year-old, from Llangefni on Anglesey, was found unresponsive near Dean Street in Bangor on 2 April.

Gareth Williams, who helped organise the event, said: "Playing the game was our way of remembering Es."

He said it was also about "doing their bit" to help his family.

The match pitched former Bangor University squad members against the current team, at the Bangor University Stadium 3G pitch.

A 26-year-old man is due to go on trial in the autumn charged with Mr Esin's murder.
