WHITCHURCH Alport FC have announced that a new stand will be constructed in the memory of one of their most beloved fans.

Alport super-fan Aaron Millington died in early January, and a charity fund was set up in his name.

After discussions with Aaron's parents, Tony and Jane Millington, it has been proposed to construct a new standing terrace at Yockings Park, using the Aaron Millington Fund.

This idea was something Aaron himself discussed with other supporters prior to his tragic death to help create an even better atmosphere at home games.

The club hope to begin work as soon as possible and will be hosting an open meeting later in the year to allow others to help share their thoughts with Tony and Jane along with the football club.

"Tony and I would like to thank the town of Whitchurch and Whitchurch Alport Football Club for the overwhelming community spirit over the last few months to help us though the tough times," said Jane.

"Your support has been above and beyond what we could have ever expected but shows how our one and only son Aaron 'Azza' Millington was loved and respected in the town.

"We are working together with Whitchurch Alport Football Club to make an everlasting memorial to Aaron in a place he loved and spent a lot of time.

"This memorial will be paid for from the amazing donations by Nantwich Cheese, Aaron's funeral and fundraising over the past few months.

"We are so thankful to the whole town for your support now and in the future to make this memorial happen."

The club say they will continue to raise funds purposely for Aaron's Fund to solely make improvements at the club that they feel create a memory for Aaron's legacy.

If anyone wishes to donate further to support both this initial and future projects, please contact the club or Tony and Jane direct.
