A DARWEN junior football club is being given a grant by a charity set up in memory of a former player.

The Every Action Has Consequences campaign was started after Adam Rogers was killed by a single punch trying to stop a drunken fight.

His family launched the campaign, in conjunction with the Lancashire Telegraph, to highlight the impact people’s actions can have on others.

As a former player for Darwen Rangers, the family will hand over a cheque for £1,000 at Darwen Aldridge Community Academy on July 3, which the club is to use to give bursaries for youngsters to get into sports coaching.

The coaching training will be delivered by national sports governing bodies and those given the bursaries will be expected to complete 30 minutes of volunteering for every pound they receive.

Adam’s dad Dave Rogers said Adam was with Darwen Rangers for two to three years. He said: “The club helped him make many special friends and awarded him with the Most Improved Player of the Year award twice on the run. That was typical of Adam’s character, he was a slow burner when it came to football but he kept persevering.

“When we set up the charity we decided we wanted the subsidiary aim of the charity to help young people get into coaching. So when we were heard about Darwen Ranger’s ambitious coaching programme we were pleased to back it.”
