Players and fans will fall silent at the Brandywell in a touching tribute this afternoon in memory of a lifelong Derry City supporter who has died after losing his battle with cancer.

Sean Og Semple, who was 38, died at the Foyle Hospice on Friday. It was a double tragedy for the well known Semple family, from Charlotte Street, who lost their father - also called Sean - to lung cancer last July.

Speaking yesterday Bridgeen Semple said her late brother fought his illness with dignity and bravery, especially during the final days of his life.
