Leigh Genesis Remembers A Club Legend..

1 year ago By Joshua smith

Taken To Early...Gone But Never Forgotten..

Leigh genesis F.C would like to share with all club members the sad news about the passing of our U21 and open age player Niall Dearnaley.

Niall signed on for the Club on 8th July 2008 and played for the U10’s Sunday Team on 7th September 2008. His last game was on the 16th April 2017, playing for the Reserves.

Niall continued his Club Service, running through the Age Groups each season and was awarded the 5 year Long Service Award in 2013. His loyalty was unwavering and re-signed on each season up the U21’s.

Niall played over 320 games for the Club, both Saturdays and Sundays. A very strong uncompromising defender to start with but in later years enjoyed a good spell as striker and scored a number of very important goals in the U17’s Bolton, Bury and District Football League Champions Winners and Chairman’s Cup Winners.

Make no mistake Niall is a legend within Leigh Genesis.

During his playing career he won many Team Awards including ‘Most Consistent Player’, ‘Most Man of Match’, ‘Parents Player’ and ‘Team Player’, but most of all he won new friends.

The Club will be exploring how we can remember Niall so that his presence will not be forgotten.

The Club Would Like To Send Our Condolences To All His Family At This Difficult Time.
