Welwyn Rugby Club held a minute's silence in memory of Daniel Ginty before their weekend game against Westcliff. Players also wore black armbands.
Soldier Daniel, 26, of Beehive Lane, WGC, was killed in a car crash in Wales after watching the RBS Six Nations match between Wales and England in Cardiff.
His dad John and brother Adam both played for Welwyn teams at the weekend as colleagues paid their respects.
