Via their twitter account, Reading FC have confirmed that a minute silence will be held before the match on Saturday at home to Bristol City, to pay our respects to the Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and the other people on board who died in the tragic helicopter accident last Saturday night, outside the King Power Stadium.

Mr Srivaddhanaprabha, along with two members of his staff, and two pilots lost their lives after the helicopter that was carrying them crashed in a car park just outside the Leicester City stadium shortly after their evening kick off game had finished with West Ham United.

Tributes have flooded in for the Leicester chairman, who had done so much not only for the club but the city of Leicester as well. He purchased the club for £39m in 2010 and since then the football club has improved significantly, famously winning the Premier League in the 2015/16 season.

I think I speak for everyone at Vital Football when I say how terrible this accident truly is. Obviously a great man, who was loved by many, will be sorely missed. Our thoughts go out to all those connected to Mr Srivaddhanaprabha and to the Leicester City family.
