Fund launched in memory of stabbed footballer Cody Fisher
A community fund has been set up in the name of a footballer who was stabbed to death in a Birmingham nightclub on Boxing Day.
23-year-old Cody Fisher was out celebrating with friends at The Crane in Digbeth on December 26, 2022 when he was attacked shortly before midnight.
Stratford Town FC described him as a "much loved" member of their club who will be sadly "missed by all".
The club has set a target to raise £23,000 to help young adults from all backgrounds gain a coaching or referee qualifications, to honour the legacy of Mr Fisher.
They say he worked in several infant and junior schools teaching children the sport.
A Stratford Town game will take place at 3 PM today (Saturday) and is the first since Mr Fisher's death. There will also be a minute's silence in his memory.
Two men have been charged with the footballers murder and will stand trial in July.
