CLARETS fans are planning a minute of applause for a 13-year-old supporter who was found hanged in his bedroom.

Burnley FC supporters will pay their own tribute to Henry Tattersall, from Rossendale, in the 13th minute of the away match against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Club officials are also in talks with Henry’s family about becoming involved with the youngster’s funeral.

Henry, who had just started studying at Brambles East School, in Darwen, was found at his home in Brow Edge, Newchurch, around 5.20pm on Monday, and taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital via ambulance and pronounced dead at 6.30pm.

Lancashire Police said there were no suspicious circumstances and an inquest was opened and adjourned to take place next February by the coroner.

Alan Beecroft, treasurer of Colne Clarets, said it would be a fitting way for Burnley fans to remember one of their own.

He said: “I feel a great sadness for his family for this terrible tragedy.

“It’s a nice thing for the club and fans to show their support during this very difficult time.”

A spokesman for the Clarets said: “The club is aware of the Tattersall family’s plight and our deepest condolences have been sent to them.

“We are in discussions with the family and will be showing the club’s support at the funeral.”

Hundreds of friends and strangers from across East Lancashire have been leaving heartfelt messages of condolence to the sports-mad student online.

More than 1,100 had signed up to a Facebook page called R.I.P Henry Tattersall yesterday.
