Liam Walsh

We normally share good news stories, but sadly on Saturday 18th September 2021, Liam Walsh, aged 23, sadly passed away.
The thoughts of everyone at Halton Farnworth Hornets go out to Liam’s family friends and team mates, he will never be forgotten.

Liam started his rugby journey as a youngster with Halton Farnworth Hornets, and his ability took him on to bigger and better things as he represented his country and home town as a professional. He never forgot his roots and this year returned to the club he loved, playing once again with his team mates in the Open Age.

The support shown from the people in the Rugby League Community is really heart warming. A massive thank you to especially to the Rugby League family in Widnes – Simms Cross, West Bank Bears, Moorfield Tigers and our friends across the river in Runcorn, for your kind thoughts, it just shows how our game rises above rivalry when the need dictates.

The club has opened a Celebration of Life Book which is available for people to write in and leave their respects. There is always someone glad to see you at our club if you need to speak to someone x

Rest easy Walshy x
