Devastated family, friends and teammates have remembered the Wolverhampton teen for his radiant smile and loving, kind nature.

The club have named an award in Myles’ honour, while a GoFundMe page has so far received hundreds of donations totalling more than £12,000 – including £1,000 from the club.

Brewood Juniors chairman Mac Webb, who founded the club in 1975, said each season the Myles Christie Award would be given out.

It will be awarded to the player who has shown the greatest strength of character during the campaign across all age groups.

Steve Phillips, who coached Myles at Brewood Juniors, said: “We are all truly heartbroken by the events of the last week and our thoughts are with the family who have all been with us since Myles joined at under-7s in 2014.

“The award the club have created in Myles’ name is so fitting as Myles has overcome difficult circumstances personally and developed so much as a player, but also as a polite, sociable, bright young man who always played the game with a smile on his face.

“All at the club were so proud of him. We will miss our number nine.”

School friends have arranged two balloon releases in Myles’ memory, the first of which took place last weekend.

And a tribute wall has been set up at Brewood CofE Middle School, where Myles attended previously.

Donations to Myles’ fundraiser will go to Birmingham Children’s Hospital and memorials for Myles.
