Redlands United footballers have honoured a father from an opposition club who was killed in a scaffolding collapse during one of their games last month.

TRIBUTE: Members of the Redlands United under 15 division two team honoured the late Andy Jones who died in a scaffolding collapse during a match against Michelton FC with arm bands at their recent game.

The under 15 division two team were playing an away match against Michelton Football Club on July 25 when a father from the home team, Andy Jones, was killed when the scaffolding viewing platform he was standing on collapsed.

The players witnessed the incident and parents from both sides and other spectators performed CPR on the 37-year-old who later passed away.

Redlands United players and coaches wore a black armband for the late father and a green and yellow armband for the colours of Mitchelton FC.

The team held a round circle and a minute's silence in Mr Jones' memory with the opposition team the Bethany Rams before the game.

They had planned to host the tribute match the week after the accident but it was postponed due to community sport restrictions following a south-east Queensland Covid lockdown.

It was rescheduled to August 29, the club's first game back.

In a thrilling match, the Redlands United claimed a two to one victory over the Bethany Rams.
