players, managed by last season’s first team boss Jon Laugharne and Nick’s son George Markham.

They will be competing for the Nick Markham Cup, which the club hope will become an annual contest.

Nick’s association with Finchampstead began in 1996 where he was involved in running a team before becoming secretary in 2002, where he helped grow the club from 10 teams with less than 120 members to 25 teams with almost three times as many members as when he joined.

The game will take place at Finchampstead FC at 2pm, with events around the pitch beforehand from 12:30pm with all welcome to celebrate Nick’s life.
