Eagles life member andBen’s former coach Daniel Draper said it was important to remember Ben’s life and raise much needed funds for headspace, the national youth mental health foundation.

“Ben was such a personality, always the funny guy and always a competitor,” Mr Draper said.

“Ben’s passing has greatly affected his family, friends, the football club and the local community.

“We can’t change what has happened but we can all do our best so this doesn’t happen again.”

For the first time the Eagles side willhave four senior grades playing in the special Ben Stevens memorial jersey.

The jersey includes the four club logos that Ben played for includingEast Campbelltown, Campbelltown City, Macarthur Saints and Western Suburbs Magpies.

The jerseys will all display the headspace logo.

“The jerseys are a mainlygreen color to focuson the headspace color,” Mr Draper said.

“This has worked well in the past with many people asking why the jersey isgreen, and the reply is simple, for headspace.”

All jerseys will be sold at the end of each game for $100, raising money to support headspace.

The main Sydney Shield game will kick offat 2.30pm.
