Football tournament in memory of Exeter man killed in car accident is to become annual event
A FOOTBALL tournament in memory of Ben Gillard, the young man who died in a road accident, is to become an annual event.
Ben, of King Arthur’s Road, Beacon Heath, was 23 when he died in January last year after his car collided with a hedgerow near Ashburton and overturned.
The former pupil of St Sidwell School and St Luke’s High School had worked at Western Power Distribution in Exeter for several years after completing an apprenticeship and qualified as a linesman.
Colleagues at Western Power joined family and other friends at Heavitree social club for a Memorial Cup football tournament.

Adrian Hearn, a colleague and friend of Ben, who helped organised the tournament, said: “It all went really well and everyone seemed to enjoy it.
“There were six teams involved, including one made up of Ben’s friends who went on to win the tournament and were presented with medals by Ben’s parents, Alison and Shaun.
“The idea is that it will now be an annual tournament in Ben’s memory.”
