GoFundMe page set up for Jakob's family

15th April, 2024

Wakefield AFC have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the family of a supporter who passed away following a medical emergency at one of their games last week.

Organiser, club COO Emma Ayrton, said: "Wakefield AFC want to help support the family in raising funds for Jakob’s funeral costs.

"Jakob was a Wakefield AFC fan supporting the team home and away over the last few years.

"Unfortunately, Jakob passed away after collapsing during our county cup Semi-Final on Thursday evening against Pontefract Collieries.

"We would be grateful for all donations, however large or small, all funds raised will be passed to Jakob's family.

"Let's do what we can in supporting them."
