Ben Tozer has posted a heartbreaking message on social media after his father passed away on Monday following his cancer diagnosis. And the Wrexham captain took the opportunity to warn others about the dangers of not acting quickly enough when noticing the potential symptoms of cancer.

Tozer, 33, shared on Twitter that his dad had been diagnosed with leukaemia on Saturday. Having been told by doctors that the disease was treatable, he underwent a brain operation on Sunday, but tragically died on Monday.

Following the publication of the message on Twitter, Wrexham's official account swiftly sent a message of condolence to their skipper. It said: "So sorry to hear this. Our thoughts are with you and your family."

Having invested heavily in the club, Tozer was one of a number of key signings who agreed to drop down the football pyramid in order to be part of the project that looked to get the Red Dragons back into the EFL.
