Friends and family of a much-loved teenager came together for a memorial football match in celebration of his life.
Nyall Brown, from Cromer, died on May 22, 2018, at the age of 19.
An inquest held earlier this year heard how the "funny" and "mischievous" Mr Brown had struggled with his mental health for several months.
On Saturday, September 7, a special match was held at Cabbell Park in Cromer to raise money for Mind and East Anglian Air Ambulance, charities close to the hearts of Mr Brown's family.
One team, playing in yellow, was made up of Mr Brown's friends, while members of his family donned a red kit. After a close-fought 90 minutes of action, the yellows eventually came out on top to triumph with a 5-4 victory.
Following the match, a huge turnout enjoyed a BBQ, raffle and live music from the Rubix Cubes.
Organiser Ezekiel Downes, a good friend of Mr Brown, said: "A massive thank you to everybody who made the day such a success. Hopefully next year will be even bigger!"
