Coventry City supporters are being urged to support the charity weekend in memory of Ross Emslie.

Ross passed away in October 2013 after a battle with leukemia at the age of 15 and spent a time with the City squad at Ryton training ground during his illness.

Ross also travelled with the City squad to Port Vale on the team coach and had a charity game played in his honour at the Ricoh Arena, in which former Sky Blues captain Carl Baker managed a team which raised over £25,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The family have another great event planned to help raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, University Hospital and Coventry & Warwickshire Adolescent Ward at Coventry Saracens Junior Football Club.

On Saturday, April 23rd, there will be a children's 7-a-side tournament followed by an adult's 7-a-side tournament on Sunday, April 24th and both days include a BBQ, hot food, Bouncy Castles, a DJ and drinks at the bar.

There will also be a prize raffle with some fantastic football prizes, with some worth over £200, and there still looking for more donations to help raise money.

If you donate any items for the raffle or want any extra information, call Lee Thomas on 07555113749.
