Adam Chadwick fund for sport

The Adam Chadwick Fund 4 Sport

Adam Chadwick was murdered in 2008, aged 20 whilst visiting his sister in Harehills, Leeds. His family, Police and the official inquest into his death concluded this was a result of mistaken identity. Adam in his younger years attended Armley Primary School, he was very shy and reserved, but his cheeky smile was always commented on and made him well liked by all friends and teachers alike. As he grew up he became interested in all sports but mainly football. He began to play in various tournaments for Armley Juniors - Project for Young People and his love of football grew.
In his teens whilst attending Wortley High School his interest in sport grew. He joined the school football and rugby teams. Outside of school he played for Wortley Boys Football Club, Milford Rugby League Club and West Leeds Rugby Union Football Club. He represented his city by playing for Leeds City Boys Football and Leeds and District rugby league. He eventually made a decision to concentrate on his football as this is where his passion was.
He became a ball boy for Leeds United where he collected football memorabilia such as photos with world famous players along with autographs. He left school and undertook a trade in carpet fitting but he continued his football playing for Guisley Academy and Wharfdale. He then had his biggest love, Ruby his daughter, she was the love of his life and he doted on her. Adam lived his short life to the full and made the most of his time with us. He was a very good friend to many and his ready smile will be missed by all.
Adam's family and friends decided to establish the fund, in Adam's memory to provide a variety of sporting activities for young people across Leeds.
