A selection of football jerseys signed by some of the biggest names in professional football are to be raffled off in memory of a young Cookstown man.

Teenager Jordan Scott, who passed away suddenly in May this year was a football fanatic and played for Cookstown Youth.

Four football jerseys including one signed by Jordan’s favourite team Liverpool FC will be raffled off to raise money for Epilepsy Action NI.

Jordan’s father Jonathan told the MAIL: “The Liverpool shirt was sent by the Liverpool Foundation for Jordan’s charity, the Northern Ireland shirt was kindly handed over by David Healy, Northern Ireland’s

record-breaking striker signed by the whole squad plus David himself. Local lad Stuart Dallas got his Brentford shirt signed for the charity as well.

“We also have a signed shirt from Sheffield Wednesday and Andrew Johnston from the Northern Ireland football league supplied a World Cup ball for the draw. The response and support for this final charity event has been phenomenal and hopefully a good total can be achieved.”

A special tribute page for Jordan has been set up in his memory and donations to Epilepsy Action NI can be made through the page at http://jordan.scott.muchloved.com The draw will take place at Mid Ulster Sports Arena on 4th November at 8pm.
