In memory of Jake Westby

It is a sad day when we even have to write things like this and I wasn't really sure where to start. However, we have all been informed over the past couple of days that Jake, sadly, lost his life on Thursday 8th June.

Having been given permission by his family and on behalf of the Attenborough Colts Football Club for which Jake devoted many years of his time as our star goalkeeper. I have set up this campaign to help Jake's family towards any costs for the funeral, memorial or to spend the money, however, they see fit.

Via the team's manager Dave Campbell we will 100% ensure all funds raised will go directly to Jakes family.

I know many people reading this will have known Jake for much longer than I have myself and my heart goes out to all of you at such a sad time.

We would be extremely grateful for you to share this with others that also knew Jake, even if you cannot afford to donate yourselves.

Many Thanks
Emma (ACFC)
