Burnley fans pay tribute to Henry Tattersall

Supporters of both Burnley FC and Huddersfield Town paid a moving tribute to a teenage Clarets season ticket holder who was found hanged last week.

More than 17,000 fans at the John Smith’s Stadium, as well as players and staff in both dug outs, rose to their feet on Saturday and united in a one-minute applause in remembrance of Henry Tattersall.

As soon as the fixture struck the 13th minute, which marked the youngster’s age when he died, an image of the avid football fan was projected on to the big screen in the John Smith’s South Stand that housed 3,639 Clarets.

That poignant moment was met by chants of “he’s one of our own”, while a message read ‘A true Claret, always in our thoughts. UTC!’ Members of Henry’s family attended the game, which the Clarets lost 2-1.
