Hull FC have paid tribute to former player Bradley Parker, who was killed in a car accident in Holderness during the weekend.

Mr Parker, 19, and the 18-year-old driver of the Vauxhall Corsa he was travelling in, died after they were involved in a collision with a Land Rover Defender on Newfield Lane in Lelley at around 2.40pm on Sunday.

Mr Parker, from Burton Pidsea, left the Airlie Birds’ academy earlier this year to begin an apprenticeship course and was expected to play for Skirlaugh Bulls next season.

Hull FC revealed that Mr Parker’s name would feature on club jerseys during the 2016 Super League campaign.

A statement read: “Hull FC have been deeply saddened by the news that former under-16s captain Bradley Parker has died following a road traffic collision on Sunday.

“The club were informed yesterday afternoon that Brad had passed away and our immediate thoughts and sincere condolences have gone out to his family, friends and former team-mates.”

It went on: “He was a popular member of a young squad that went on to produce current first-team players like Jack Logan and Reece Dean, who were his close friends…

“On behalf of everyone involved at Hull FC, we would like to pass on our deepest sympathy and condolences to the families involved in this tragic incident and Brad’s contribution to the club from a young age will never be forgotten.”

Humberside Police is investigating the accident and has issued an appeal for witnesses.

Anyone who saw either vehicle prior to the accident is urged to call the non-emergency number 101, quoting log 340 of November 15.
