Chelsea Football Club will honour a fan, Bob Huxley, in the derby clash against Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Bob Huxley, 63, a devout Chelsea fan, was one of seven people who died in the Croydon tram disaster.

Chelsea will honour the memory of the late fan, who was a lifelong Chelsea fan and season ticket holder.

In the 63rd minute of Chelsea’s home clash against Spurs on Saturday, the age at which he died, the crowd will clap for Mr Huxley.

The power of social media has helped to convey the message in the hope the ground will join as one and honour one of their fallen family.

A leaflet sent out reads: “Bob was a larger than life character and very hardworking.

“He was a loving husband, devoted father, grandfather, brother, uncle and dear friend to many.

“Bob attended Blues games with his brothers Phil, sons Adam and Ross, and close friends with whom he sat with in the Matthew Harding lower stand.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
