A TARVIN schoolboy organised a football match in memory of his dad who died of leukaemia.
Robbie Plank, 11, lost his father Steve to the illness just after joining the reception class at Tarvin Primary School six years ago.
He organised the memorial match to pay for a wooden bench next to the football field.
Liverpool fan Robbie said: “My mum came up with the idea so parents could have somewhere to sit to watch the football.
“I played with my school team against my Saturday team, Tarvin Under-11s, and we won 12-7. It was really good.”
Robbie’s mum Sandra was cheering Robbie on from the sidelines with his older sister Vickie, who came home from university to see the match.
Talented Robbie also starred in the school production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, taking the role of Willy Wonka, in his final school production before moving on to Tarporley High School.
Teacher Jean Nield said: “Robbie contributed so much to life at the school and was fabulous as Willy Wonka. We are sorry to see him go.”
