Kris Juszczak

It is with deep sorrow and profound sadness that Greenock Morton Football Club and Morton in the Community share the news of the passing of our community coach Kris Juszczak.

Cappielow staff learned of Kris’s untimely death late last week and immediately cancelled our Easter camps to allow both his friends and work colleagues to process the information and as a mark of respect.

Kris, who has been part of our set-up for two years after coming to our attention through the Future Jobs Fund project, was both a valued coach within our community set-up, working with the 2008 age group two nights a week, and within our holiday camps.

The 26-year-old’s development in the last 24 months has been an inspiration to everyone around Cappielow. He will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew him here at the club.

Our sympathies and condolences go to his family and friends at this very sad time.

His funeral will take place at 2pm on Thursday 20 April at Greenock Crematorium.
