Family ask for football fans to celebrate the life of their beloved daughter this weekend

Wolves fans have been asked to give a minutes applause to the 16-year-old who tragically died in an car crash in Oldbury.

Liberty Charris waskilled by a car which careered into a crowd on Wolverhampton Road on Sunday, November 20th.

Ben Corfield also lost his life, and he will be laid to rest on January 6th.

Liberty’s father, Andy has appealed for Wolves fans to pay a special tribute to his beloved girl at this weekends home match against Manchester United. He said:

"Sadly, we lay my beautiful 16-year-old daughter to rest after a tragic road traffic accident a few weeks ago.

"Liberty was a loving Wolves fan, She loved her footy, supporting the wolves and even as a three-year-old supporting her brother who went on a week’s long Man Utd soccer school."

"When not watching the Wolves, she’d often be seen watching her brothers Sunday league team come rain or shine. However Wolves were her first love and had been since her first game at the age of 10, she just loved it at the Molineux and after many games of me taking her up there in 2017 she convinced me to get us both a season ticket.

"So J7 in the Steve Bull stand will never be the same again without her beautiful soul in it cheering on her team, giving her running commentary of the game.

"So, I’d like to ask every single Wolves fan if they’d join with me, her two brothers and close friends in a 1-minute applause starting on the 16th minute at the next home game against Manchester United on Sunday to celebrate her short but happy life.

"It would mean so much to us all especially of course to Liberty."

The celebration of Liberty's life takes place today, which will culminate at Dudley Town Hall, and anyone attending is asked to wear colourful clothing or football shirts in her honour.
