It is with great sadness that I report to you that Darren Rodgers, the young football supporter from Northern Ireland who died in France, was a long time, enthusiastic member of our Brigade. Darren joined the Church Lads’ Brigade in St Patrick’s, Ballymena, as a Martin and made his way through the Y Team, the JTC and Seniors. He represented the Ballymena CLB Company at the Brigade’s National 5 A Side Football Championships in England on a number of occasions. In more recent years, Darren assisted Company Captain, Alan Ross, as a leader in the Company.
Please keep Darren’s family in your thoughts and prayers as they try to deal with the sudden loss of their only son.
