Oliver Croker died after suffering severe head injuries when part of a metal fence at the side of the pitch in Kensham Park in Bradninch, near Exeter, hit him during the game.
In a post on Facebook, his mother Pippa said she felt "so proud" that Oliver could help save the lives of others.
We would very much like you all to feel so proud of Oliver this evening. Through organ donation he has given life to five other children.
