We are sure that all of our users will have been shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Adam “Carney” Cooper who died during a North West Men’s League Division Four match on Saturday.
Adam was playing for the Culcheth Eagles Open Age team (based in Warrington), in an away fixture at Runcorn ARLFC on Saturday when he collapsed on the side-lines.
Adam's club have set up a JustGiving page to raise money to assist his family at this most awful of times and we've made a small donation on behalf of the users, moderators and administrators of RLFANS.COM and hope that you could do the same.
Paramedics were unable to save the 31 year old father of three when he collapsed at Heath Playing Fields in Runcorn. In a statement, the Culcheth Eagles say Adam will be sadly missed by the entire rugby league family:
"It is with the deepest sadness that we can now confirm the passing of one of our Open Age players, Adam 'Carney' Cooper, at Saturday's away match at Runcorn.
"Adam who was 31, will be sadly missed by his Mum, Fiancé Michelle, 3 children, Grandma, Sister, Step-Dad, Uncle, all of his Rugby League family at Culcheth Eagles & Friends."
