Lewis Hilton

The club has been greatly saddened to learn of the loss of Lewis Hilton at the young age of 19. Lewis was admitted to Huddersfield ICU with suspected meningitis on Friday 26th January and sadly passed away on the morning of Sunday the 28th after failing to respond to medication.

He has been at the club since the age of 6 and was in the first training sessions when we set up our junior section with only 4 or 5 players. Lewis played through every age group through to Colts and was a mainstay of this season's Development (2nd) team. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Morley, Tracy and relatives.

Details of the funeral arrangements.
Monday 26th February, 2:15pm at Park Wood crematorium followed by a gathering at the club. The family request no flowers, but donations to the charity, Meningitis Now, would be appreciated.
