TEAMS from across the Garnock Valley took part in a memorial event for a special Beith youngster.

The Corey Hamilton Memorial Trophy was held for a fifth year.

It was staged in memory of Beith youngster Corey, who died from a rare form of childhood cancer in 2013, aged nine.

Taking part were St Palladius, Dalry, Beith, Gateside and St Bridget’s Primaries and Garnock Campus.

It was a fitting tribute to the youngster.

And there was a high standard of football on show with Beith Primary defeating defending champions Dalry 1-0 in the final, courtesy of a goal from Harris Gallacher. Player of the tournament was Tammy Kerr from Garnock Campus.

The event was organised by Beith Community Trust and was once again a success.

Corey’s dad, Stephen Hamilton said: “Thanks to everyone who turned out to take part in the tournament.

“It went really well and was well supported by the community.

“The children enjoyed playing and they also had some time out of school.

“The competition was really well organised but the event wasn’t so much about winning, the kids also just enjoyed taking part. It’s a good community event which is well run by the Community Trust.”
