Supporters of both Norwich City and Queens Park Rangers took part in the poignant applause in memory of Steven Taylor at 38 minutes into the match at Carrow Road.

Mr Taylor, 38, died on August 7 after a nine-week fight with bowel cancer.

The Sprowston-born navy technician, who travelled from Cornwall to watch his beloved football team play at Carrow Road, has left £10,000 for the Brickmakers pub to distribute among its chosen charities.

Nev Townsend, chairman of the Forces 2 Canaries group, said Mr Taylor was 'very popular and very sociable'.

He added: 'It just stunned us all when the news broke that he had been diagnosed.'
