Tributes paid after death of sports fans
TRIBUTES have been paid following the unrelated deaths of three sports fans from the Valley.
Passionate Manchester United supporter Jason Marshall, 48, who once talked his way into a Champions League final, was found dead at his Haslingden home after suffering a brain haemorrhage.
Bus driver Graham Catlin, 41, is also being remembered following his tragic death just seven weeks after being diagnosed with liver failure. A huge Liverpool fan, Graham also loved watching his son Jordan, 18, play for Rossendale Rugby Club. And tributes have been paid to former Rawtenstall Cricket Club captain Keith French, who led his team through their most glorious season, following his death aged 76.
