They dedicated the banners to the community of Brookhaven, which lost two police officers in the line of duty just over a week ago.

One of the banners read: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God”.

Brookhaven Academy thanked their rivals, calling the banners a touching tribute. There was also a balloon release at the games.
