A TRIBUTE to a talented footballer who died in a car crash was unveiled at the weekend.

Emma Holloway, 19, who played for AFC Sudbury Ladies, was killed on the A134 at Cockfield a year ago on Thursday after her car was in collision with another vehicle.

A picture to commemorate the life of Miss Holloway, from Badwell Ash, was hung at the clubhouse in Brundon Lane on Sunday.

Manager Clive Golding said: “We wanted to pay tribute to Emma, who was a fantastic young lady and a talented footballer, who helped young people throughout the club. It is a mark of respect to her really.

“It has been just over a year since Emma passed away in tragic circumstances, and it was always our intention that the club would mark it in some way.”

Miss Holloway’s former team fought out a 2-2 draw with Fakenham Town Ladies on Sunday, in a match watched by about 75 spectators.

“Emma played with us in the Suffolk League last year. We gained promotion and her contribution certainly helped put us on track, as she scored 19 goals before November,” said Mr Golding.
