He said: “We worked with the Bury Park community and some of the local businesses helped fund the idea, we gave out packets of Ferrero Rocher to fans with a message of support.

“We wanted to send a positive message of unity to strengthen community relations and improve understanding.

“It is really about thanking the local community, the supporters of the football club who come into Bury Park on a weekly basis.

“Showing a small act of kindness to the local community, the football club is an integral part of the community. We want to show the fans that we are very grateful that we have that community spirit.”
