"Oliver joined Thackley Juniors at under sevens, and played through to under-18 level before leaving for university in Liverpool.

"Winning various accolades through out his time with both Thackley Storm and Lightning teams, including the Players Player and Coaches Player of the Year on numerous occasions.

"Oliver was instrumental in the Storm team's only league win in 2014, and will be remembered as an intelligent, kind hearted, funny character, that will be truly missed by everyone that knew and played with him.

"Our heartfelt sympathy go to Oliver's family and friends."
