A St Albans City football club volunteer who died earlier this year is to have a club terrace named after him.

The Clive Churchhouse Terrace at the York Road End will pay tribute to the popular supporter.

Mr Churchhouse died after falling from the Clarence Park arena’s roof in July.

The club are dedicating this Saturday’s game against Gloucester City to him.

His family will attend the match, as will one of his favourite footballers, former England striker Alan Smith.

Mr Smith will help the family unveil a commemorative plaque at the ground.

Supporters are advised to be at the ground for 2.30pm for the unveiling ceremony.

A minute’s applause will take place prior to kick off.

St Albans have so far won six out of seven league games this season, and are currently second in the National League South table.

The Health and Safety Executive are investigating Mr Churchhouse’s death.
