LULLINGTON Park's cricketers have taken to the field in specially made caps paying tribute to a much-loved colleague who died recently.

Following a minute's silence prior to the first XI's Derbyshire Premier League clash away at Ockbrook & Borrowash on Saturday, Park's players donned caps embroidered with the words: 'Charlie Veale, 1992-2014, LPCC forever'.

Mr Veale, who was 21 and studying to be a chartered surveyor, suffered a stroke caused by a brain aneurysm on July 7, and died three days later at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield.

His funeral was due to take place at 12.30pm today at St Andrew's Church, in his home village of Clifton Campville, with donations for genetic research.
