Keighley Cougars chairman Gary Fawcett has confirmed that at the request of Danny Jones’s family, their game against Coventry will be played this Sunday.
Fawcett says that the squad will be aiming to “do Danny proud” in the game, and also added that a third of gate receipts from the match will be donated to the fundraising efforts which began yesterday.
Fawcett said: “I can confirm that our Head Coach, Paul March, has confirmed that Danny’s family have requested for the game to go ahead this Sunday.
“I know that our players are hurting but they will do Danny proud on Sunday.
“The club will contribute 1/3rd of the gate monies from Sunday to Liz and the twins and all fund raising within the ground that day will be exclusively for the benevolent fund that has been set up.
“Please make every effort to fill Cougar Park on 10th May. We will update everyone on the format of the day in due course.”
