Go Fund Me page set up to pay for star player’s surgery

Keighley Cougars have been unable to pay for fullback Lewis Young’s ankle surgery.

Thus, Young has had to wait for the surgery with the NHS. But, due to the nature of the NHS, the wait is set to be a long one.

Thus, a Go Fund Me page has been put together by Tony Miller, a former coach of Young’s, to raise the £7,500 needed.

Miller made the following statement:

“I’ve known Lewis Young for 20 years, I coached him at junior level and have followed his career. He is a great lad with a lovely family.

“He injured his ankle, which needs surgery playing rugby for Keighley cougars on the 7th of May. As of yet he hasn’t had the surgery and the NHS have said it isn’t a priority.

“He needs £7.5k for the operation to get him back playing ASAP.

“It would be great if Cougars fans, his friends and family can support him.

“We all want what’s best for Lewis and to get him back on the pitch doing what he does best.

“No negative comments as this won’t achieve anything.

“Any donations welcome no matter how big or small.

“Many Thanks.”

Here’s the link to the page:
