A popular St Albans City supporter who sadly passed away earlier this year is to have a stand at his beloved club’s ground named after him.
Clive Churchhouse, who died in July after falling from the roof of City’s Clarence Park, was a lifelong fan and dedicated volunteer at the Hertfordshire club.
St Albans are dedicating this weekend’s National League South clash against Gloucester to him, and the York Road End of the stadium will be renamed The Clive Churchhouse Terrace.
Supporters are advised to be at the ground for 2.30pm, as members of Mr Churchhouse’s family and his favourite player, former England and Arsenal striker Alan Smith, will be involved in the unveiling of a commemorative plaque.
A minute’s applause will also take place prior to kick off, before St Albans City look to continue their excellent form which has taken them to second in the division.
The Saints have won six of their seven league games so far this term, and a win on Saturday would prove a fitting tribute.
