On Saturday, Norwich City supporters led the applause for the Dereham youngster, who died aged four on February 14, less than a year after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.

Thousands of fans from both teams joined in the applause, which was held during the fourth minute.

The gesture comes after Norwich City's Todd Cantwell called on fans to lead a special tribute to the little 'superhero'.

Appealing to fans on Twitter he said:'The 4th minute of the game I would like to have a minutes applause in the name of Denver Clinton, a beautiful boy taken far too soon! Let's make it as special as he was!'
