THE Bournemouth Hayward League will take a representative team to Brockenhurst tomorrow night (7.45pm) in a special memorial match for the late Dave Lane.

Lane was a life vice-president of the Bournemouth FA having been on the council for 18 years while serving as vice-chairman at Brockenhurst. He died unexpectedly in April 2011.

BFA president Mike Fowler said: “Dave was a terrific ambassador for clubs from the Forest and surrounding areas.

"Brockenhurst FC had been his second home during the last 11 years of his life.

The teams will contest the Dave Lane Memorial Shield at Brock’s Grigg Lane home.
