Preston Grasshoppers members and supporters will be saddened to hear of the death of former player Chris (Cocker) O’Toole.
Cocker played for Hoppers from 2003 to 2007 and was a highly influential figure in the 2004/5 promotion season that saw the club regain its National League status.
Chris was a well respected player throughout the North West and represented West Park, Fylde and Orrell with distinction.
Chris is survived by his wife Ruth and two sons Liam and Jamie. Our condolences go to Ruth, Liam, Jamie and all of Chris’ family and friends at this difficult time.
Chris’ funeral will be held at St Matthew’s Church, Thatto Heath, WA10 3SE on 12th August at 12 noon followed by St. Helens Crematorium at 13.00. The wake will take place at West Park Rugby Club afterwards. All those who wish to attend are invited.
