A car crash that resulted in the death of former Cardiff academy player Corey Price, and three others, will see their memories honoured in a charity match next match to be held at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The crash in the Brecon Beacons saw Price along with Alesha O’Connor and Rhodri Miller killed along with Margaret Challis, a passenger in another car, in March with his father Lee Price touched by the clubs idea of this match.

‘It’s been overwhelming. Corey spent eight years with Cardiff’s Academy and the club recently came to me with the idea of a memorial match.

‘Corey had an infectious giggle when he got excited and I’m sure he’ll be looking down with a smile on his face.’

Our Academy operations manager Anthony Redwood, who was a key person in arranging this benefit match, is hoping to make this an annual event.

‘Corey played a major part in our programme and more so in the lives of others – the staff and his teammates at the academy.

‘We hope that we can make an annual event of the match and celebrate their memories.’

The game will be played on June 14th that will be free to enter with collection buckets for donations welcomed with the proceeds going toward the Corey Price memorial bench at his school, Ysgol Bro Morgannwg in Barry.
