Funeral held for under-14s Stanley Rangers RLFC player
The funeral of a boy from Wakefield who died after a suffering a head injury in an under-14s rugby league match has been held.
Evan Hawksworth was injured playing for Stanley Rangers RLFC against Batley Boys on 9 July and died in hospital later.
His funeral took place at Holy Trinity Church in Rothwell, West Yorkshire.
Evan's family said at the time of his death it had been a "tragic freak accident" and no-one was to blame.
A crowdfunding page to support the family set up by Stanley Rangers RLFC and the RFL Benevolent Fund has raised more than £25,000.
