THE Bendigo Police and United Cricket Club will honour the memory of Andrew Steel when they play for a trophy named after him in a Twenty20 game on Friday night.
The match at Ewing Park is being played to raise money for the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation, as well as honouring former Bendigo Senior Constable Steel, who died in 2018 following a battle with illness.
"Steely was always a bubbly, passionate person and when it came to not just work, but sport, he always wanted to put his best foot forward and that's what we'll be aiming to do on Friday night," said Mick Delaney, who will captain the Police team.
"We'll have Steely's son, Stefan, playing with us as well, so it's great we'll have the family involved in the game as well."
Friday night's game starts at 6pm. BBQ and drinks will be available.
