Friends and family pay tribute to Ethan and Connor
Hundreds of mourners gathered in Kirkcaldy to pay tribute to teenagers Ethan King and Connor Aird who died following a tragic car crash.
Heartbroken family and friends lit candles, listened to music and released balloons at the memorial event for the friends and team-maters.
The teenagers (pictured together above, Ethan left) died following a one-vehicle accident which took place on Standing Stanes road last Sunday.
The friends, both 17, played for Glenrothes Athletic and the club issued a statement after Connor’s death yesterday.
“Connor was a member of the team for several seasons, and captained the side during the treble winning season of 2016/17. He was such a talented footballer, a leader, a captain, a teammate and a friend.
“The thoughts and prayers of everyone at the club are with Connor’s family at this difficult time.
“RIP Connor. Teammates forever.”
A third passenger remains in hospital with serious injuries and he is in a stable condition.
