Norwich City footballer Todd Cantwell has thanked supporters for their tribute in memory of Bradley Raper following his death at the age of 24.
Fans at Carrow Road took part in a minute-long applause on 24 minutes during their home win against Aston Villa in memory of Mr Raper, from Scarning, near Dereham, who was killed in a car accident near Thetford.
Todd and his brother Jordan Cantwell, who is Mr Raper's friend and will be one of his pall-bearers, both posted on social media before the game to try and raise awareness of the applause.
In a tweet, Todd Cantwell said: 'Would like to thank the fans for the support last night! Friends and family together as one! 3 points was 'For you Brad'. Love you brad fly high.'
He also held up a shirt at the end of the game which read 'For you Brad'.
Mr Raper's family watched the game at home live on sky and his aunt Sara Greentree said the family was touched by the 'lovely' and 'humbling' tribute.
