BARNSLEY and Blackpool fans are being encouraged to pay their respects in the sixth minute at tonight’s game in memory of a young boy who died from cancer.

George Alexander Singleton was originally diagnosed with neuroblastoma – a rare type of cancer that mostly effects babies and young children.

He died just days before Christmas last year - and now George’s family are asking for fans to take part in an applause in the sixth minute tonight.

Blackpool was George’s favourite place to travel whilst he was ill and so his family thought it would be the perfect game to pay their respects.
