Speaking after Saturday's event, Karen said: "To all at Oxhey Jets FC, following yesterday's unveiling of Garry Beadle's memorial stand, as Garry's mum, I would like to say what an honour and with much love and pride, that I had the privilege of unveiling his memorial stand on a very emotional day.

"I know my Garry will be chuffed to bits looking down on every game at Jets FC, the club he loved so much.

"A huge thanks to club founder John Elliott for initiating this lovely tribute for Garry. His memory will never be forgotten now. Fly high my beautiful (No 10) boy."

A blue balloon was released into the sky with the message '#10 always in our hearts'.

Garry, described by his father Kevin as a "cheeky rogue" spent much of his life in South Oxhey, playing for the Jets, where he was nicknamed the "wasp".

His mother said he earned the nickname because he was "very irritating but lovable, both on and off the pitch".
