Former Dewsbury player Will Forsyth has died following a battle with cancer, aged 24.
The full-back or winger made his first-team debut for the Rams in 2015 and was a key member of the club’s reserves side that lifted the Reserves Championship trophy in 2015. Forsyth also played for Hemel during his playing career.
Jonathan Schofield, who coached Dewsbury’s reserves at the time, said: “Will played a big part in the team. He went about his business in a quiet way and was always professional.
“Will was a good lad to coach and he had the respect of us all, especially his team-mates.
“He was great to have around the dressing room and he will be sadly missed by everyone.”
Had the pleasure of spending a year with Will at Dewsbury in 2015, taken far too young. Thoughts go out to his family and friends. RIP Will! https://t.co/1IDRIKwPvR
