THE leisure centre where Bow AAC player Nick Cole worked before his tragic death will close tomorrow (Friday) as a sign of respect.

Nick Cole was a duty manager at the Riverside Leisure Centre in Exeter. During Bow AAC's home match against Thorverton on October 18, Mr Cole collapsed after coming off the field of play, and was flown to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, but died shortly after arrival.

The closure of the leisure centre will allow his work colleagues to attend Mr Cole's funeral.
