Gosport Borough will pay their respects to Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha on Saturday after he died in the helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium.

On Saturday a minute’s silence will be held before the match against Chesham United.

This will give everyone in the ground the chance to pay their respects to the Foxes chairman and the four others who lost their lives in the accident.

It will also be a special Armed Forces tribute ahead of Remembrance Day on Sunday, November 11.

Forces veterans are invited to attend the game free of charge to take part in the formal Act of Remembrance.

Meanwhile, Borough joined the football community in sending their heartfelt best wishes and sympathies to all at Leicester City at this very sad and upsetting time.

Earlier this week, Borough fan Jamie Palmer organised Gosport’s own tribute.

He and his family are all Leicester City supporters and they regularly watch matches at Privett Park.

Jamie's mum, niece and nephew attended the King Power Stadium to pay their own respects with a card and flowers.

They placed the Borough scarf at the ground on the club's behalf.

Players will wear black armbands for the Southern League premier division south match tomorrow.

All matches in the Southern League will have a minute’s silence before kick-off to pay respects as football stands together with Leicester City.
