Reader Alan Patchett brought in this photo to the Journal of a charity football match outside Colsterworth Social Club over 25 years ago.

It was played by Salvesen staff, including Grantham’s mayor Ian Selby (fourth from right, background).

The game was in memory of Alan’s son Lionel and his girlfriend Marie who both sadly died in a car crash on the A52.

As Lionel had worked at Salvesen with his father it was decided a memorial match by his colleagues would be a fitting tribute.

Alan wanted to bring in the photo to remember the day, and added that it showed how even at a young age the mayor liked to get involved in community events.
