A FOOTBALL match will honour a Newport man and sports fanatic who recently died with cancer.

Cons versus All-sorts reunited game will take place on Saturday, May 28, in memory of Dominic Halpin from Newport, who was 33.

Mr Halpin loved football; he was a Red Wall member and dreamed of one day playing at a World Cup final.

South Wales Argus:

Footballer, Gareth Bale, and FAW’s (Football Association of Wales) chief executive Neil Mooney have offered their condolences to his friends and family.
