Watch: Huddersfield Town fans pay tribute to Gavin Greig

Applause and songs for the Town supporter who tragically passed away last week

Huddersfield Town fans rose as one in the 23rd minute of the match with Cardiff to pay tribute to Gavin Greig, a supporter who sadly lost his life to cancer last week.

A minute's applause was organised in memory of the footballer, who had a heart transplant at the age of nine.

Sadly, his cancer was a side effect of anti-rejection drugs needed to save his life.

Friends of the 23-year-old planned the terrace tribute against Cardiff, which was enthusiastically taken up by fellow fans.

Following the applause, the crowd sang Gavin's name - saluting him as "one of our own".

Watch the video above to see the moving tribute to Gavin.
