The funeral of a 13-year-old who died while playing football will take place on Wednesday (June 29). Friends and family will gather to mourn the death of Samuel Akwasi.

Samuel was playing for FC Cavaliers U13s against WBCY FC Rossoneri, and had scored the first goal of the match before collapsing on the pitch on May 7 at around noon at the Forest Recreation Ground. His dad, Tubman Akwasi, said the death of his son is a pain that he has to face everyday.

Samuel’s funeral will take place at the Baptist Church on Gregory Boulevard on June 29 at 10am. It will then be followed by a brief lying in state at Forest Fields Recreation Ground at 11am before proceeding to the Highwood Cemetery in Bulwell at 12pm.
