It was an emotional night at the Racecourse on Tuesday evening as Wrexham AFC paid tribute to lifelong fan Shaun Jones. 

47-year-old Shaun passed away last week and friends and family wanted to pay tribute to him during last night's game against Halifax Town. 

Shaun was a season ticket holder in the Mold Road stand, and also followed Wrexham away with a number of close friends.

In the 15th minute of last night's game, everyone in the ground joined in for a minute of applause to remember 'football-mad' Shaun. 

Shaun's daughter Emily, sat in her dad's seat next to Lee Chamberlain, one of her dad's best friends as the Reds won 3-1 on an emotional night. 

Lee said: "It was incredible, I didn't expect that sort of response at all. 

"I'd had loads of responses and fans coming up to me before the game, talking about Shaun and passing on messages. 

"Then in the 15th minute, the whole ground got up to clap. It wasn't just the Wrexham fans either, the Halifax fans were on their feet clapping, as were the police, I was made up.

"They even read Shaun's name out at half time on the tannoy and referenced the minute of applause which was great. 

"It was a very emotional night, the minutes' applause was tough. I didn't cry but me and Emily were both choking up."

Following the game, Wrexham club captain Ben Tozer also paid tribute to Shaun, when asked about the support they'd received. 

He said: "Incredible, and I'd just like to mention the clap in the 15th minute for Shaun. 

"He lived on the same street as me in Nantwich, it's very sad but it was a nice moment to give him that clap."
