The former chairman of Diss Football Club who helped lead the team to Wembley glory has died.
Des Tebble was chairman of the club when it won the FA Vase at Wembley in 1994, leading to a celebration parade through the Norfolk market town.
Mr Tebble had also played for the Tangerines in the 1950s and 1960s with eight seasons as club captain.
He became club chairman in 1984/85 season and held the post until 2010.
In December 2012 Mr Tebble was invited to turn on the Diss Christmas lights to mark his contribution to the town's football club and his work for charity.
The FA Vase final saw 10,000 Diss fans travel to the home of football to watch their side beat Taunton Town.
A minute's silence was held on Tuesday's match against Stowmarket as a tribute to Mr Tebble.
