There will be a charity football match between Exeter City and a West Ham and Reading combined XI in memory of the late Eamonn Dolan.

Eamonn Dolan passed away this summer at the age of 48 after a battle with cancer.

His passing saw a flood of heartfelt tributes pour in for a man that impacted so many lives, with the club renaming the North Stand the Eamonn Dolan Stand in his memory.

The news release reads:

Everyone at our club understands the debt of gratitude owed to Eamonn and will get the chance to pay their respects and honour the great man on October 23.

The kick-off time for the game has yet to be confirmed, but it will see a team made up of players Eamonn has either developed, played with or managed take on a combined West Ham United and Reading XI – two clubs he has strong links from his playing and coaching days.

Tickets for the match will be £10 for adults and £5 for children, with the proceeds of the match going to Eamonn’s chosen cancer charities and the Academy.

A touching way to honour his memory, and raise money to continue the battle against cancer.
