Stanton: Football matches cancelled out of respect
TWO football clubs have cancelled their matches out of respect for present and former players killed in an industrial tragedy yesterday in Norfolk.
It is understood three of the four men killed in an incident yesterday at Great Yarmouth were from the Stanton area.
It is understood the men had strong ties with both Stanton and Walsham le Willows football clubs, which have cancelled their matches today out of respect.
Joy Mayhew, secretary at Stanton FC, said two of those who died were due to play against Grundisburgh today.
She said: “It is a complete feeling of disbelief.”
