Football will take second place on Saturday evening as Everton mourn the death of one of their youngest fans, 11-year-old Rhys Jones.

The youngster was murdered in nearby Croxteth this week, and his death has shocked not only the Everton community but the entire nation.

Everton will honour the youngster with a minute´s silence ahead of their Premier League match with Blackburn, and the players will all wear black armbands.
