A CRICKET tournament in memory of a teenage sports player who died of a brain tumour is set to take place.

The Oliver Mills Trophy is up for grabs by nine teams competing in the six-a-side competition, honouring the 18-year-old lad from Crawford Road, Hatfield who died in 2005.

Organised by Oli's brother Eddie, the event will also involve a colts match as well as a fun day with entertainment, barbeque and the chance to win some great memorabilia in a charity auction.

With all proceeds split between Hatfield Hyde Cricket Club, where Oli used to play and the Teenage Cancer Trust, it is hoped the event at the club in King George V Playing Fields, WGC will raise plenty of cash.
