THE funeral of Culcheth Eagles father of three Adam “Carney” Cooper will take place on Friday July 21 at Newchurch Parish Church, followed by a private burial.
The 31-year-old tragically died while playing the game he loved at Runcorn on Saturday, July 1.
Following the 1.30pm funeral there will then be a private burial and then everyone is welcome at The Daten, Charnock Road, Culcheth.
Representatives from rugby clubs are welcome to wear their club shirts.
The club has already held the first Adam “Carney” Cooper Festival last Sunday, which included a host of junior rugby teams taking part in matches, as well as a bouncy castle, zorbing and barbecue. This is to become an annual event.
A JustGiving page set up in his memory has already raised nearly £11,500.
The cause of Adam’s death has now been confirmed as Acute Cardiac Failure, which could have happened at any time and is in no way related to the game he was playing in at the time of his sudden and unexpected passing.
A club statement said: “We would again like to thank everyone for their messages of support and sympathy and the donations to the JustGiving page
Meanwhile for people and clubs wanting to donate by cheques are asked to send them to the club’s treasurer Jo Eland made out to Culcheth Eagles.
Every penny will go to the fund for the children and a full list of donations will be posted on the website.
