Football Fatality

I saw this grave with a stone football at the foot of it in my local churchyard in Radstock. It marks the grave of Ernest Joseph Hyman who died on 7 January 1927 from injuries received in a football match between the Somerset towns of Taunton and Yeovil on Boxing Day 1926. His headstone records that: "He always played the Game".
