Joshua Bwalya memorial match

Thursday August 17th 2017

This coming Sunday August 20th, Barking FC Under 17’s will play a game against a Clapton FC side in memory of 16 year old Joshua 'JB' Bwalya - a team mate and great friend to many people, not just those associated with Barking FC.

JB was taken from his loving family and his huge amount of friends in a cruel and senseless knife crime for just being in the wrong place at the wrong time and was an outstanding player and such a popular young man with teammates and adults alike.

He will be remembered for his respect, determination and above all his brilliant sense of humour. JB had his whole life ahead of him with some amazing prospects. This was all taken away from him by someone who didn't even know his name.

We at Barking FC do not want JB to be forgotten. Please come along and show your support for his devastated family who we are trying to help in the only way we can.

ALL proceeds from this game will be donated to the Just Giving fund set up in JB's honour. Kick off will be at 1pm and admission on the gate will be £5.

If you are unable to attend but still wish to donate, you can do so on the Just Giving page.
