A minute’s applause will be held in tribute to Cobblers fan David Henderson before the match against Oxford United on Saturday.

Mr Henderson, who was the general manager of the Stoke Bruerne Canal Museum, died after he suffered a heart attack outside Sixfields Stadium following the match against York City in January.

Northampton Town announced today that, with Mr Henderson’s family will be present, supporters in the ground will be asked to join in a minute’s applause ahead of kick off and his son Alex, will be one of the matchday mascots.

Supporters who wish to take part in the tribute are asked to arrive in good time.

Shortly after his death, Mr Henderson’s wife Amanda said her family had been overwhelmed by the hundreds of messages of sympathy since her world was “turned upside down.”

Mrs Henderson said at the time: “The family and I have been totally overwhelmed by the hundreds of messages of sympathy, cards and help at such a sad time when our world has been totally turned upside down. Everyone has been so supportive and we are so grateful to them.

“David Henderson was a kind, loving man who was devoted to his family.

“Alex believes his daddy is up in heaven looking down through a big hole whilst using a pair of binoculars to see what we are doing.

“If indeed he is, he will surely be very proud of his son and how well he is coping.”
