BBC Sport - Get Inspired: Playing in memory of a departed friend
Playing in memory of a departed friend
- From the section Get Inspired - England
JK Silvertown are an 11-a-side team who were formed in memory of their friend James, who was knocked over on his way home from a night out, 4 years ago.
The guys put together a five-a-side team for the FA People's Cup and progressed to the semi-finals.
Captain of the team, James, tells us: "We're an 11-a-side team and we've all known each other for 20 odd years. Silvertown's the area we all come from and JK is the initials of our friend that passed away.
He always wanted to start a team properly. We thought it was a nice gesture of all of us getting together, especially as we're getting older now."
