Gary Speed Laid to Rest

Ex Bolton player Gary Speed has been laid to rest at a private funeral today.

The service for the former Wanderers player took place this morning.

It was a private service for Friends and family only.

A public memorial service for the Wales national football team manager is being planned for the new year.

A spokesman for the LMA said: "At this time, Louise Speed and her family wish to express their deep appreciation for the very generous and clearly heartfelt tributes paid to Gary"

"She is also acutely aware how Gary touched the lives of so many people and that each of them would wish to thank him for the joy he brought to them."

Speed, who played for clubs including Leeds and Newcastle, was found hanged at his Cheshire home last month.
