Fans are to hold a minute’s applause at St Johnstone’s game with Dundee on Wednesday in tribute to Perth teenager Lily Douglas.
Supporters of both clubs are being urged to clap for the 14-year-old in the 14th minute of the match at McDiarmid Park.
Lily died on Sunday following a lengthy battle with cancer, sparking thousands of tributes from around the world.
She had become a well-known face in Perth and beyond for her fundraising and positivity – winning awards and gaining the support and friendship of numerous celebrities – and her inspirational story has even been picked up in places like Germany.
An online fundraiser has also been launched to support her family.

A statement from St Johnstone said: “Lily Douglas was a brave young woman you tragically passed away recently.
“Lily had previously performed at a half-time show with her dance troop and loved coming to McDiarmid Park.
“Everyone at the club would like to pass on their condolences to Lily’s family.
“This is, clearly, an overwhelming time for the Douglas family.
Young Lily Douglas tragically passed away recently and as such we would like to pay tribute to her.
Can every fan attending tomorrow join us in a minute’s applause to honour her life on the 14th minute

“I fully support and get behind the idea. It is a really nice touch to do that for her and her family and remember her life.
“I think her mum is behind the idea as well. It is a really lovely way to remember her and for the public to show our support.
“It also shows that everyone supports her family during such a horrible and sad time.
“It’s been really sad to see her pictures going around on social media full of life, showing off her lovely smile and how many people she’s touched.”
