Dale Tennent-Butler charity football tournament today
The family of a teenager who collapsed while playing football have organised a charity football tournament to raise money for a defibrillator and heart screenings in Kings Langley.
The 6-a-side tournament, which is being held at Kings Langley Football Club, Common Lane, today has been organised by the family of Dale Tennent-Butler - an 18 year-old who died in hospital after playing in a Powerleague football game in December 2009.
The inquest into the death of the former Kings Langley Secondary School pupil found that he died from natural causes, but it was also attributed to Sudden Arythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) - a term used to describe sudden cardiac death.
The tournament will be held at Kings Langley Football Club and aims to raise more than £5,000, £1,200 of which will be spent on a defibrillator for the Gaywood Park football club.
Once the defibrillator has been bought, the rest of the money will go towards the Dale Butler Memorial Fund.
