Those attending the funeral of Tenby footballer and bowler Adam Muskett have been asked to wear colours to celebrate his personality.

On June 13, twenty-seven-year-old Adam, of The Glebe, Tenby tragically lost his life in a road traffic collision, along with his girlfriend Katie Worrell.

Adam and Katie (25) were travelling in the same care when they were involved in a tragic two-vehicle collision on the A477 road between Llanddowror and Red Roses.

The club that he wore the number 9 shirt for, Tenby AFC paid tribute, stating everyone involved with the team were ‘shocked and saddened’ by the news.

“Adam was one of our own, a true gentleman in every sense, he was respected amongst his teammates and opposition teams also,” Tenby AFC posted.

“He showed tremendous passion and the will to win every time he put the red and black of Tenby AFC on. Katie was the most beautiful person, a heart of gold and a zest for life.

“They were two of the nicest people you would ever meet and they will both be sincerely missed by us all at Tenby AFC and I’m sure the whole of Pembrokeshire.

“This is the most heartbreaking and difficult thing we have ever had to do as a football club. Rest easy Adam and Katie,” they added.
