Football fans have rallied to help a former Ipswich Town player keep some of his most treasured belongings after he shared he would be putting them up for sale. 

Among the items David Norris said he would put up for sale included shirts and his League One winner's medal. 

Norris played for Ipswich Town between 2008 and 2011, making 118 appearances for the club.

On X, the social media platform that was Twitter, Norris has posted multiple items for sale so that he could pay some legal bills.

He stated on social media that he was involved in a civil court case in a bid to reclaim some money he says is his.

He listed his League One winner's medal from the 2004 season he received with Plymouth Argyle.



An Argyle fan saw this post and decided to help, so set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the former midfielder.

Within days, the page received over £4,000 from fans of his previous clubs.

Taking to X, Norris posted: "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."



In addition to this, former Town star and teammate of Norris at Ipswich, Jonathan Walters, posted on social media that he was going to give his signed Pele shirt he won at auction a few years back.

In the post Walters said: "I want to use this to help a former team mate and a diamond of a guy.

"What he's going though happens a lot to ex players for one reason or another and I believe that we should all help someone when they're at a low point in life so please help him if you can."

The fundraiser to raise funds for the former Town star is still open.
