The funeral of Thackley stalwart June Willingham will take place at the end of the month, it has been announced.

June was a familiar face to everyone in the NCEL as she had been a major part of the club that has spent all of its time in the Premier Division since the competition was formed in 1982.

The Dennyboys announced her passing aged 70 after a long battle with illness at the start of January, sparking a flood of tributes from clubs, supporters and officials.

A minute's silence was observed by clubs across the league at the weekend to honour her as well as former NCEL president Frank Catt and referee David Fields.

June's funeral will take place at Nab Wood crematorium in Shipley, Bradford, on Thursday 25th January, 2018, at 12:40pm.
