The Allievi Regionali have paid tribute to the memories of Alessio Ferramosca and Riccardo Neri, the two youngsters who tragically lost their lives in Vinovo on 15 December 2006, by appearing in the eighth edition of the ‘Ale&Ricky’ commemorative tournament.
Played on Saturday 31 May and Sunday 1 June in Castelfiorentino, the competition features a selection of amateur teams as well as the professional clubs of Juventus, Fiorentina, Siena, Spezia, Livorno and Empoli.
The Bianconeri got their campaign off to a winning start with a 2-1 triumph over Livorno, but saw their hopes of a first place finish dashed by a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Empoli.
This afternoon will see Juventus involved in a third-place playoff encounter against Fiorentina, while Empoli and Spezia will battle it out for top honours.
Proceeds from the entire tournament will be donated to A.M.Me.C, an association supporting research into inherited metabolic diseases.
