Dozens of football clubs across the country have donated shirts to pay their respects to footballer Jordan Sinnott, who tragically passed away last weekend

The shirts will go on display at the funeral of the 25-year-old, upon the request of Sinnott's family.

Jordan's brother, Tom Sinnott released a statement on the Instagram page @jordansinnottshirts25 about the appeal.

He said: "My brother was an amazing man and for his funeral we had an idea to acquire donated football shirts from any team that wanted to with 'Sinnott 25' printed on the back.

"Safe to say that we have had confirmation that nearly every team in the English leagues have provided one with Scottish teams, non-league and Sunday leagues also providing. 

After the funeral we would like to donate every shirt to Sports relief so that children abroad can have them and we can be happy knowing he has helped other children.

"We were hoping this could be aired or mentioned as it would mean the world to family and friends and would cement his legacy of how much an amazing person he was."

Crowdfunding pages have also been set up as parts of efforts to help Jordan's family and possibly create a memorial for him. 

Below is just a few examples of clubs donating shirts in Jordan's memory:
