TRIBUTES have been paid to Bromsgrove Sporting player Cody Fisher who died after a stabbing at a nightclub in Birmingham.

The 23-year-old was stabbed just before 11.45pm last night (Boxing Day) at The Crane  in Digbeth.

Despite efforts to save him, he was pronounced dead around 30 minutes later.

A family member paid tribute to him.

In a statement released by West Midlands Police, they said: “They have broken our hearts – I have lost my best friend, my family and I are asking for privacy and respect fulness at this heartbreaking time.”

A tribute from Bromsgrove Sporting said: “All of us at Bromsgrove Sporting Football Club are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Cody Fisher.

“Cody, was a friend to many at the club and we send our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.”

His family are being supported by specialist officers.

Detectives are viewing CCTV from the nightclub and are urging anyone who was in the area at the time to get in touch.

Det Insp Michelle Thurgood, leading the investigation, said: “This was a young man enjoying himself with friends on a Boxing Day night out and our thoughts are with his friends and family today.

“We know there were hundreds of people in the nightclub at the time.

“While we’ve spoken to a number of them already, we still need to hear from anyone who was there and who witnessed or even filmed what happened.

“We believe that the victim was approached by a group of people, and was then stabbed, so we’re working hard to identify all of those involved.”

The scene remains closed today while officers gather evidence, and neighbourhood officers will be patrolling the area over the coming days to offer reassurance.
