KIND-hearted footballers got together for a tournament over the weekend in memory of teenager Regan Murray.

Regan, who played for Busby AFC as a central midfielder, tragically died in December at the age of 14.

Following his death, his team-mates and players from across East Renfrewshire and Renfrewshire decided to hold a memorial tournament over two days at Huntly Playing Fields, in Giffnock, in aid of suicide prevention charity Papyrus.

Joseph Noon, general manager of Busby AFC, said the event was all about reminding people there is always someone to talk to.

He said: “The tournament was a great success. The weather was great on Saturday. It was a bit damper on Sunday.

“We raised around £1,600 for Papyrus, which I’m pleased with.

“It was all about letting people know there are people out there to speak to and it is okay not to be okay. There are people who will listen.

“We handed out armbands and leaflets throughout the day and a few players got a speech later on.”

In the final match of the tournament, Erskine beat Busby 3-1 before the players headed over to Pro Soccer at Rouken Glen Park for a presentation.

Regan, who lived in Paisley, was described as an “extremely talented” player by Mr Noon.

In the wake of his death, a GoFundMe page was set up and raised almost £6,000 for his family.
