Teams and supporters at a football match in Great Yarmouth will be paying tribute to a former Gorleston footballer and father-of-three who died from motor neurone disease.

Ryan Harman died aged 35 in February 2016 after more than three years of fighting the debilitating disease.

To mark the anniversary of his death, on Tuesday, February 14 a minute's silence will be held at Great Yarmouth Football Club's reserve team game against Belton FC.

Ryan's brother Regan plays for the reserve team and their mother Kim and family have been invited to attend the game at the Wellesley Stadium, which kicks-off at 7.30pm and will see players wear black armbands.

It is hoped Ryan's friends will attend to pay tribute to the Tottenham supporter.

There will be a bucket collection for a motor neurone charity.
