The thanksgiving service for the former Arnett Gardens Digicel Premier League defender, Nico 'Bones' Collins, will be held next Sunday, February 7.

The service will be held at the Kencot Seventh-day Adventist Church, 10-12 Osbourne Road, Kingston 10, starting at 11 a.m. Internment follows at Dovecot Memorial Park.

A one-hour public viewing of Collins' body is scheduled for between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on the day of the funeral.

Collins, 19, was attending regular training on the morning of January 12 in St Thomas, when he developed breathing complications. He was rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital where he died while undergoing treatment.

Tomorrow night the Arnett Gardens Football Club will host a wake at the Tony Spaulding Sports Complex, commencing at 6 p.m. and ending at midnight.

In a release to the media yesterday, the Arnett Gardens Football Club extended its deepest condolences to Collins' family, friends, teammates and the entire Arnett Gardens community during what it described as "a difficult period for all of us".
