True Blue Funeral for Avid Evertonian James Greenop
Ten year old James died following a bus accident. The young blue, who had described his recent tour of Goodison, before the last home match against Hull, as the best day of his life, was given an Evertonian’s funeral at Garston Bridge Chapel. Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman represented the club as James’ coffin, draped in an Everton flag, was carried into the chapel, by pall bearers in Everton shirts, to the Z Cars theme.
During the service a letter from Everton manager, Roberto Martinez, was read by Everton club chaplain, Reverend Henry Corbett as well as tributes from James teachers at Whiston Willis primary school where James was head boy.James’ friends and family have ensured that out of this tragedy there will at least come some good as they have set-up a just giving page to raise money for the Wirral Autistic Society.
