THE funeral of 11-year-old ‘inspiration’ Cameron Rowley will take place on Tuesday, August 21 – and every Chester FC fan is invited.

His family, from Ellesmere Port, have asked for people to wear something yellow as it was his favourite colour.

The service will take place at Blacon Crematorium from 10am.

A statement on the Blues’ website says: “Chester FC can confirm that following the sad passing of 11 year old Cameron Rowley on Monday, the family have advised that Cameron’s funeral will take place at Blacon Crematorium on Tuesday 21st August, at 10am.

“Chester FC fans are invited to attend the funeral, and family members have asked those attending to wear something yellow or sport a yellow flower, as Cameron’s favourite colour was yellow.

“We would like to thank everyone who has contacted the club to offer their condolences to Cameron’s family.

“The service on the 21st August, will be led by Chester FC club chaplain Guy Lister, and the postcode for Blacon Crematorium is CH1 5BB.”

Cameron was well-known to the team and its fans as a battler during his three-year fight against a rare form of cancer known as desmoplastic small-round-cell tumour (DSRCT).

His dad Bren Rowley led tributes this week and was joined by Chester FC players past and present.

Bren said: “I could never be more proud of you son for never giving up, you have battled hard for over three years, you were the best role model for your brothers.

“You spread happiness and joy in everything you did and I am so thankful and privileged to be your dad Cameron Rowley.

“Sweet dreams son, good night god bless, I love you more than anything in the world.”
