A charity football match and family fun day in memory of murdered teenager Ramarni Crosby is set to be held this weekend. The event organisers hope to raise cash to donate towards youth clubs opening in Gloucester.
Ramarni was brutally killed after he was stabbed in Gloucester the evening of December 15 last year. His death sent shock waves across the city and a huge movement is underway from the people of Gloucester to make a change and get knives out of the hands of young people.
Ben Clune and Lee Southern from Gloucester were spurred on to make a change following the news of Ramarni’s death and created a group called Put The Knives Down Gloucester. However many others are also looking to do their bit to make a difference in light of the tragic events surrounding the death of the teen.

The charity football match and family fun day is set to be held on March 6. It is taking place at the Spa Cricket Ground opposite Gloucester Park and gates to the event open at 11am, and the match is expected to kick off at noon.
The Tredworth Old Boys versus the Tredworth Tigers teams will be going head to head on the day to do their bit for the cause. Ramarni’s uncle Danny Davis will be managing the Tredworth Tigers along with current manager Lee Smith for the day, and there are high hopes for the public to attend and enjoy the action.
Money will be raised on the gates with £1 entry per person, and players are each paying £10 to play the match. There will be a barbecue available on the day where food has been donated and all profits made from the food sales will also be donated to the cause – click here for more information.
