MUM Stacey Rodgers is backing a appeal to raise money for the soccer club for which her son played until his tragic death.
Dominic Rodgers, 10, died in February of carbon monoxide poisoning.
He was sleeping at his home in Spaines Road, Fartown, when the deadly gas seeped in through brickwork and killed him.
Football-mad Dominic loved Manchester United and enjoyed playing in goal for the Space Football Academy, based at Fartown.
Now, mum Stacey is busy supporting Space's aim of raising £20,000 over the next two years.
The club wants the cash to improve its Spaines Road ground to county FA standard and to buy equipment for the junior and open age teams.
Stacey said: "Dominic spent most of his days playing football. Everywhere he went he had his football with him.
"Space was Dominic's life; he loved them. I feel I have to help them in any way I can," she added.
The idea of Space is to use football as a tool to develop ambition and a positive attitude in young people from the Fartown, Deighton, Brackenhall and Bradley areas.
The club also has strict standards for behaviour and has won the Fair Play Award from the Huddersfield and District League.
Julie McParland, who runs Space with former Emley footballer Milton Brown, said: "We are a forward-looking organisation seeking to bring out the best in young people.
"But we do need support to achieve our ambitions."
As well as seeking sponsor- ship for the club, Space is holding its own fundraising events.
These include raffles, selling scratch cards, a sponsored car wash, a sponsored football skills challenge and an annual football tournament in honour of Arthur Wharton, the first black professional footballer in England.
