TRIBUTES have been paid to a young man who died while walking home in Little Sutton.
Andrew Henderson, 22, was fatally injured after colliding with a car on a pedestrian crossing outside Little Sutton Station early on Sunday.
He had been returning from a presentation organised by Ellesmere Port Golf Club at about 2.15am after picking up a runners-up prize there.
A single man, Andrew lived with his parents Allan and Susan in Kronsbec Avenue, Little Sutton. He leaves a brother Paul and sister Joanne.
His father said: 'Andrew was bright, bubbly and was always smiling. We will all miss him.
'It's always the brightest light that shines for the shortest time. Andrew shone with brightness.'
When he was a youngster, Andrew played for the Viscount Juniors football club, then for Neston Nomads.
As well as doing kung-fu, the sports-mad former Sutton High pupil was a junior member of Port Sunlight Golf Range, later working there as a range assistant and in the shop.
He was also a member of Eastham Golf Club juniors section and Ellesmere Port Golf Club juniors, later becoming an adult member at the club, playing in the low-handicap 'scratch' league.
Andrew supported Liverpool FC, played on the snooker team at the Wings Club in Little Sutton, and also enjoyed visiting Chester Races.
His father said: 'The house is filled with so many medals and trophies he won.
'Sport was his life, he loved it. He played so many different sports, but his main love was golf.'
Born in Ellesmere Port, Andrew worked as a kitchen fitter for Factory Kitchens & Bedrooms in Saltney, Chester.
