Please forgive my ignorance, but who was Nathan Christie? I'm guessing from the colour of the bench and flowers, that he played football.(for the Wigan Athletics?)

The match is on Saturday 19th August 2017. The picture that is up is from last year as we held a match and raised over £3000.
Nathan was a well known lad around the Wigan area and the match is to raise money for the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably)
