Michelle Dack, 52, died last month after a battle with a rare form of cancer.

Mourners wore City shirts and scarfs as the funeral procession started at Carrow Road.

One shirt read: “Sis RIP 52 OTBC”.

The hearse, which was full of yellow and green flowers, was driven around the stadium followed by a Sanders Coaches bus with some of the grandmother’s football friends.

The procession then passed Miss Dack’s house before arriving at St Thomas Church on Earlham Road for the service where fans sang ‘On The Ball City’.

Miss Dack had been to 908 consecutive games to watch her beloved team and was a well known face around Carrow Road for decades.
