All at the Racecourse were distraught to hear the sad news that young Dakota Roberts has passed away.
Skipper Shaun Pearson paid his own tribute, having met the four-year-old when she joined him in leading the team out prior to the televised game with Eastleigh in October.
Dakota suffered from a number of illnesses, including a rare condition called West Syndrome, which could cause her to have up to 80 fits a day.
While also suffering from epilepsy, a neurological condition called Dystonia, which affects muscle movement, and chronic lung disease.
Her funeral will take place this Friday at the Parish Church at 10.00am, with the family asking for nice bright colours to be worn and everyone is welcome.
Very sad to hear this news. Such a lovely little girl. Thoughts with the family. RIP Dakota
