Crystal Palace and Huddersfield fans have been urged to unite and pay their respects to Damary Dawkins during the tie at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Fans have been urged to conduct a minutes applause in the 13th minute for the Palace youngster who tragically passed away with leukaemia a fortnight ago at the age of 13.

Damari, who was a member of Palace’s elite development squad, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia when he was nine-years-old and when he relapsed in 2018, a stem cell donor became his only chance of survival.

They then succeeded after an appeal from the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust (ACLT), Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson and Sterling.

After a successful transplant however, Dawkins relapsed two more times before passing away in March 2019.

Raheem Sterling paid tribute to Damary by dedicating his second goal in the Euro qualifier against the Czech Republic to the Sydney Russell School in Dagenham pupil last Friday.

Sterling said: "He was a kid I was trying to help.

"We thought we found a donor and unfortunately it didn't match and he sadly passed away.”
