40th Minute - Stand In Memory of Idrizaj

40th Minute - Stand In Memory of Idrizaj

The 40th minute of Monday's Play-off final game, stand up and show your tribute to Besian Idrizaj who tragically passed away on May 15th 2010.

There has been a big online campaign to attract fans to mark a special tribute to the young Austrian, who passed away in his sleep just over a year ago.

On social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, plus on numerous message forums, people have called out for everyone to stand up during the 40th minute and hold up a scarf or flag in Besian Idrizaj's memory.

Besian's very short life tragically came to an end last year and it affected a lot of people. It shocked and saddened everyone surrounding the club, not to mention his family, friends and everyone who knew him.

So lets show another huge mark of respect on Monday at around 3.40pm, stand up and show a scarf or flag in memory of Besian.
