Clarets fans are being asked to join in a tribute to a tragic 13-year-old found dead this week.

Burnley FC supporters attending the away match at Huddersfield tomorrow hope everyone will join in a minute’s applause for season ticket holder and devoted Clarets fans Henry Tattersall in the 13th minute of the game.

Henry, from Rossendale, was discovered in his bedroom around 5-20pm on Monday. He was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after 6-30pm.

There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

Henry’s mother Eve and stepfather Lee paid tribute to henry, saying he was “fearless, adventurous child who loved his sport, especially football and golf. Burnley FC was his passion and he was a season ticket holder”.

John Rider, headteacher at Brambles East School, Darwen, which Henry attended, said: “Henry started at Brambles East School in September and had been with us for seven weeks. He settled in very quickly and had become a very popular pupil with staff and his peers.

“He joined in fully in school life and was making excellent progress with his work and behaviour. Staff and pupils alike will miss his quiet smile and calm manner.”
