NELSON MANDELA TRIBUTE

6 December 2013

Minute's applause to honour a world great

Town will join the rest of football in holding a minute’s applause just before kick-off against Huddersfield tomorrow to honour the memory of Nelson Mandela. 

South Africa’s first black President and joint winner of the Nobel Peace Prize of 1993,  passed away last night aged 95. 

Football League Chief Executive Shaun Harvey said: “Nelson Mandela was an inspiration to millions and his determination, courage and forgiveness marked him out as a truly great man.  

“We are delighted to give clubs and their supporters the opportunity to pay their own tributes to Nelson Mandela and recognise his extraordinary legacy.”
