Shaun followed Wrexham home and away with his close friends, who paid tribute to him earlier this week.

Now his daughter Olivia has paid a heartfelt tribute to her dad.

"He would do anything for anyone and was always trying to help people that's the type of person he was.

"Me and my sister were everything to him and likewise he meant everything to us.

"Having spoken to a number of his friends in the last week, they say that all he ever spoke about was me and my sister.

"He was the life of the party and I know that gets used a lot but he actually was. He was always the first one up singing and dancing, he was just so funny."

Shaun's love for football clearly rubbed off on his daughters, with Olivia playing for the love of the game and Emily represented Wales at youth level.

Olivia added: "He was so passionate about football he always used to take me and my sister to our games and training. He was always there to support us.

"One of the last things he said to me in the hospital was how he remembers a goal I scored during a game once. 

"Both me and my sister played football and most of the things that were said were about football with him.

"I remember going to watch Wrexham at Wembley and on the train down there he got up and started chanting, I think a lot of people wondered what on earth was going on, but that was just what dad was like.

"There wasn't just one memory with dad, it was all the little things."

Shaun's funeral takes place on Friday, November 11 at 1pm at Northop Crematorium, followed by a service at Penyffordd Legion after. 

The preferred dress code is football shirts.
