Frome Town v Northampton Town in memory of Tom

We're honoured to be a charity partner of both Frome Town FC and Northampton Town FC, so it's fantastic to be able to shout about this match between the two sides on Tuesday 18 July - at the SpecialEffect Stadium in Frome! It's a match in remembrance of our great friend Tom Clark, who passed away last year, and we can't thank both clubs enough for this gesture.

Peter Moore, CEO of Liverpool Football Club and SpecialEffect Vice-President, met Tom through SpecialEffect and their mutual love of Liverpool FC resulted in a great friendship.

"You meet so many people in your life, but only few leave an impression that lasts a lifetime." he said. "Tom was one of those people. He was as upbeat and positive human being that you could ever hope to meet... He truly wanted to help other video gamers who were physically challenged."

This also from Northampton Town's website:

Northampton Town will travel to Evo-Stik Southern League side Frome Town in pre-season to show the club's support for the SpecialEffect charity and to remember one of their ambassadors.

SpecialEffect are one of the club's official charity partners and Frome Town supporter and SpecialEffect ambassador Tom Clark sadly passed away last year, and the game will be played his memory.

"With my links with SpecialEffect, and Tom and Frome Town being so involved with the charity, when asked, it was an easy decision to agree to this fixture, particularly as it gives is the chance to remember and pay tribute to a very special young man," said Chairman Kelvin Thomas.

The game will be played on Tuesday July 18th with a 7.30pm kick off.
