The funeral of former Carlisle United and Workington Reds player Tony Hopper will take place at Carlisle Crematorium on Monday afternoon.

The father of three lost his battle with Motor Neurone Disease earlier this month at the age of 42.

A hugely popular figure during his time at both clubs, Hopper was well respected in the game and amongst supporters. A large crowd is expected at the service.
