Wroxham officials today confirmed the club will hold a minute's silence before tomorrow's FA Cup third qualifying round tie for long-serving King's Lynn official Maurice Ebbs who died on Thursday.

Mr Ebbs spent more than 50 years serving the Blue Square North club in a variety of behind-the-scenes roles and was instrumental along with his wife Jenny in running the Junior Linnets' supporters' club in recent years along with his duties as travelling first team secretary.

The Linnets will wear black armbands as a mark of respect at Trafford Park. Lynn Reserves will hold a minute's silence prior to tomorrow's home Ridgeons League game against Tiptree. The club also plan to pay tribute to Mr Ebbs prior to the next scheduled Blue Square North home league meeting against Farsley Celtic on Saturday, October 18.
