A community rugby club held a minute's silence to pay tribute to its coach after his passing with Covid-19.
Dedicated Dartford Valley Rugby Club team manager Keith Landon died earlier this year after contracting the virus.
The coaching and support team decided to use one of its first competitive fixtures to remember Keith with a minutes silence held before the game and a "few excellent words about the man".
On Sunday, all the club's sides lined the length of the pitch to pay their respects.
A message posted on the club social media, read: "We lost our team manager, Keith Landon, to Covid earlier this year and it hit us all hard, especially and most importantly, his son Daniel who plays in the team.
"Keith Landon was a genuinely lovely bloke. Happy to help with anything for the boys. He will be missed, remembered and never forgotten.
"It was humbling and fantastic to see the reaction of the kids to the silence. Complete respect.
"We were also so happy that Keith’s wife Donna and family were there to see it. We promise we will ALWAYS be there for Daniel."
It added: "Well done everyone involved. It’s what rugby and community is all about."
