The daughter of a former Port of Felixstowe worker - and lifelong Ipswich Town fan - has said her father would have been 'honoured' to receive a round of applause at a packed Portman Road.

Supporters of the Tractor Boys are set to take part in a minute-long round of applause after 65 minutes of Friday's home Championship game against QPR for each of the 65 years of Peter Taylor's life.

The proud Town fan died on December 4 after developing mesothelioma, a type of cancer that mainly affects the lungs, but also other organs.

Earlier this month, she paid tribute to the 'modest, hard-working' Felixstowe man who was a 'doting father'.

"I would describe him as hardworking, honest, an old school man with morals you don’t see much anymore, he was so funny and made jokes at inappropriate times.

"He loved his family more than anything, every gift he got us was so thoughtful and he always made us feel incredibly loved and cherished."

The former football manager also liked collecting items, such as a Smarties tin from the 1980s and Coca-Cola glasses from the early 2000s.
