Tributes have been paid to a former Gorleston footballer and dad who died last night.

Ryan Harman, 35, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2012, and his family announced he passed away at home last night.

Chairman of Gorleston FC Alan Gordon extended his sympathies to Mr Harman’s family and friends on behalf of the club, and said he was a ‘very, very popular’ man who would be remembered fondly.

Throughout his battle with the condition, Mr Harman received warm support from the community, who raised money to pay for him to have pioneering stem cell treatment in China.
