One of the fans revealed that a man named John Clarke was a regular at the same venue in the last 40 years and now that he has passed away, his friends bought an extra ticket to reserve a seat for him.
“Brilliant story about John Clarke, who hasn’t missed a game in 40 years in Trent Bridge. He has passed, but his friends have still bought his tickets and reserves a seat for him to watch. Lovely,” the user quoted.
