The games at Culver Road in Lancing will remember Matthew Grimstone and Jacob Schilt, and teams will be made up of a number of their friends and former work colleagues.

Matt’s brother Paul will captain one team, and will play Mile Oak FC reserves - a club Matt previously played for.

The first game will take place at 12pm for the Grimbles and Snoobs Cup.

The second game will be at 3.30pm between Worthing United and Mile Oak FC’s first team.

Entry is by bucket donation and money raised will be split between the Robert Eaton Memorial Fund and the Shoreham Dogs Trust.

Jacob raised money for the REMF for several years and the Dogs Trust was the last charity Matthew supported when running in the Brighton Marathon.
