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.
