Minute's Applause For Broadcaster

Blackpool Football Club paid its respects to BBC broadcaster and Pool fan David Oates against Millwall on Saturday. 

A minute's applause was held prior to kick-off and his family also attended the fixture, following the sad news of his passing at the age of just 50. 

David's funeral will take place in London this week and a Just Giving page has been set-up in his memory. Donations can be made to RNLI Blackpool or The British Heart Foundation.
