Ash Finlay memorial deck pledge

Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of 24-year-old skater Ash Finlay from Spondon, Derbyshire who died after suffering injuries in an incident outside a Derby city centre pub on April 9. Thomas Cullen, aged 29, also from Derby, has been charged with Mr Finlay’s murder and is due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court next month.

Whilst his trial is ongoing, Derby scene locals are planning a run of memorial pro decks as a fitting tribute to Ash who loved skating. 50 decks will be made once the orders arrive with all monies going towards a fund for another memorial that will be decided as a tree/bench/plaque tribute.

Get involved if you are local by ordering a deck from this facebook page and take good care out there. Ash Finlay RIP.
