Portsmouth, Plymouth, Ipswich and Leeds fans help ex-player sell title medal to fund court case

Portsmouth, Plymouth, Ipswich and Leeds fans all come together to help ex-player David Norris sell his title medal to fund a court case.

A touch of class from supporters as they help out the former pro-footballer as he battles to try and take his parents to court.

Norris, 42, planned to let go of his League One title medal that he won with his old club Plymouth Argyle, he announced on Twitter.

He said: “Plymouth Argyle fans / football fans/collectors… League One Championship Medal from Plymouth Argyle winning the league and promotion to the Championship in the 2003/04 season ⚽️ DM Offers (currently £500)

“I don’t know where to start. I was just trying to raise some money to help with solicitors/court costs but overwhelmed beyond belief for everyone’s support. Thank you for allowing me to keep the medal 💙💚 can’t believe the response. Once it’s over I will pay back or donate back”

Having seen his post, Plymouth supporter ‘Janner Royalty’ set up a donation page in a bid to help raise £1,000 with the money going to cover Norris’ legal fees, so that he doesn’t have to sell his medal. At the time of writing, £3,460 has been donated by 254 people.

The JustGiving page read: “Weʼre raising £1,000 to help ensure that David Norris gets to keep his League One Title Winning Medal. David is an argyle legend and it’s only right that we help!

“David Norris is a club legend and we cam all help him with a donation. He’s fallen on hard times due to the actions of those he loved and trusted. As Argyle fans, lets do our bit to show him the love!”

Norris replied having seen this: “Honestly that is an incredible gesture. I have someone who is willing to buy with an option to buy back so I will do that. Thank you for your support it means a lot 💚💚”
