Members of the Market Weighton branch of Hull City Official Supporters Club are selling charity wristbands in memory of a teenager who died of a rare heart condition.

Josh Fell, 15, died from Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome in 2011 while playing football. The supporters club has launched a charity wristband in memory of the Hull City fan and to help raise awareness and funds for the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young. Nadine Matthews and Fiona Colling, from the Market Weighton branch of the club, have been working hard along side Josh’s family to promote the wristbands and have gained the backing from some ex-Hull City players, including Dean Windass, who was Josh’s hero. Wristbands are available on Hull City match days, from supporters club desks, or via the website www.hullcityosc.co.uk, priced £2. To help spread awareness, tweet a photo of yourself wearing a wristband using #HCOSCsupportingCRY or post a picture on the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/HCOSC
