CHELSEA fans are being invited to support a road safety campaign in Huntingdon through the Premiership club's website.
The Warren Hay Road Safety Action Group has been pushing for safety improvements on the A141 following an accident in which 16-year-old Warren was killed.
The young Chelsea fan, who lived in Alconbury and attended St Peter's School, was hit by a car as he tried to cross the road on his way to Jubilee Park in Huntingdon.
Already more than 10,000 people have signed a petition supporting the campaign for a safe crossing over the A141. Now Chelsea FC has put its weight behind the campaign.

The Hunts Post has suggested a light-controlled crossing on A141 by its junction with Kings Ripton Road. This would be a cost-effective solution and allow cars to make an easier right turn from Kings Ripton Road - another road safety issue in the area.
The Warren Hay Road Safety Action Group is planning more immediate measures - it plans to place new signs along the A141 says 'Slow down for Warren'. A spokesman for the campaign said the signs are at the printers and should be in place by the end of next week.
