APPLAUSE FOR MANDELA TOMORROW

6 December 2013

Following the sad passing of Nelson Mandela the club will be holding a minute's applause prior to tomorrow's FA Cup Second Round fixture against Stourbridge.

The Football League, in conjunction with the Premier League and Football Association, has asked its clubs to hold a minute’s applause ahead of matches this weekend to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela, who died yesterday at the age of 95.

Football League Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said: “Nelson Mandela was an inspiration to millions and his determination, courage and forgiveness marked him out as a truly great man.  We are delighted to give clubs and their supporters the opportunity to pay their own tributes to Nelson Mandela and recognise his extraordinary legacy.”
