Minutes applause 41st minute on Saturday

Recommended Posts

Good evening All, I would like to kindly invite you all to join in for a minutes applause on Saturday for a life long City fan and great friend of my self and many (Benjamin Parker) who sadly passed away at the young age of 41 on the 30th Dec at home after a night out with his friends..

Scotty Murray has kindly sorted out tickets for friends and family and a small tribute in the programe 👍🏻

Benjamin is the lad far right in the dark blue polo, I’m sure many of you will recognize him..

God bless you mate xxx

Truly gutted to hear about this. What a top lad he was. The two Newcastle/Sunderland nights out with Ben will live long in my memory. Will be sorely missed

So sad . Can the club do anything to put up on the screens to let people know   ? Not sure what’s been done before or whether this is seen as not the ‘ done thing ‘

That would be a nice touch... Not sure the club like doing it though as it would set a precedent..

I think it has been done before but not often, don’t know if people haven’t asked or the club won’t do it or people just don’t want it.

I thought Stoke did a nice tribute. Applause at the start of the game and photos of all their fans and people connected with the club who are no longer with us in the past year on the screens. It was a nice gesture I thought.

When I asked Matt Parsons about this a few months back , he said they wouldn’t use the big screen but could put something in program 

 

RIP Ben

So sad to hear of another City fan leaving us far before his time. A rousing 41st minute I hope to remember someone I never knew  but younger than my two daughters. RIP Ben and condolences to your family and friends

As others have said, a very sad story.

I hope the applause of all us fellow fans can bring a crumb of comfort  to Benjamin's family and friends.

That’s a sad thought. One less City fan in their seat.

I hope he has a lovely tribute today.

It`s what proper fans do. When it all boils down to it we`re all part of the same wonderful game and every fan is `one of our own`.

RIP Ben, no doubt you enjoyed the win from up there in the best seats.
