| #LUFC to celebrate the life of Toby Nye at our Championship fixture against Norwich City— Leeds United (@LUFC) January 24, 2019
Per the club’s official website:
Leeds United Football Club will be celebrating the life of Toby Nye at the Championship fixture against Norwich City on Saturday 2 February.
Any fans wishing to bring flowers to remember the youngster, who had a very special bond with the club, should leave them at the Billy Bremner statue outside Elland Road on the day of the game.
Our players will wear black armbands and a minute of applause will be held to honour Toby ahead of kick-off.
Liam Cooper had a wonderful relationship with the boy, and Leeds United fans will provide a guard of honour for the boy’s funeral procession.
