A teenage kickboxer who died after a fight will be remembered at Sheffield Wednesday's match against Reading tonight.

Sheffield Wednesday has agreed for a message about Scott Marsden to be displayed on the big screen at Hillsborough at half time after being contacted by the 14-year-old's friends.

There will also be a tribute to him in the match day programme.

Scott, from Malin Bridge, fell ill during a fight for a national title in Leeds last weekend.

The fight was stopped and Scott was taken to hospital but could not be saved.

He used to train at Marsden's All Styles kickboxing club at Hillsborough Arena in Hillsborough Park, which was run by his dad, Simon and uncle, Darren.

Scott, who attended Forge Valley School in Stannington, also played football for Hallam Juniors Football Club.
