A minute’s silence has been held at football games in the North East of Scotland in tribute to a six-year-old Scots girl who died suddenly.

Football-loving Kacey Seivwright was attending a club in Aberdeen when she took ill and passed away last week, according to local reports.

Her cause of death is unclear at this time.

The Tullos Primary School pupil was an avid fan and attended girls matches across the region, with her sister playing for Grampian Girls FC U18s.

A range of teams paid tribute to Kacey by falling silent ahead of their games at the weekend.

They included Grampian Girls, who posted a moving statement on their Facebook page.

It read: “Please note prior to kick off we would like everyone to observe a minute’s silence in memory of Kacey Seivwright who suddenly passed away this week.

They said how the youngster was ‘her sister’s number one fan’ and cheered her and the team on most weekends.

They added: “The team and everyone associated send their condolences to Kelsey and all her family at this sad time.

“Fly high little one, RIP Kacey.”

Amateur football team Kincorth AFC also posted a tribute to Kacey, and held a minute’s silence before their game.

It read: “Prior to kick off’s for today’s game we will be observing a minute’s silence in memory of Kacey Seivwright who suddenly passed away this week.

“The club want to show their condolences to the family.

“The news is devastating and as a club we are all thinking of the family at this sad time.”

Cove Youth FC also followed suit with a tribute and a minute silence before their game.

They added: “Prior to kick off’s this weekend we will be observing a minute’s silence in memory of Kacey Seivwright who suddenly passed away this week.

“Your little girl will forever be in our thoughts and her memory everlasting in those who knew her.

“Fly high princess RIP Kacey.”

A fundraising campaign has been launched by friends and family of Kacey to help install defibrillators at schools and after school clubs across the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire area.

It has made almost £15,000 after being set up two days ago.

Kacey’s aunt Dana Seivwright also paid loving tribute to the “beautiful baby girl.”

She wrote: “With your happy smile and your sense of fun i just cant take that you are gone.

“You brought a joy to every life you touched and you are missed so so very much a beautiful soul lives on forever and memories of you we will always treasure.”

A memorial flower wall is being planned at Tullos School which Kacey attended, with decorations crafted from plastic bottles, bags, cups and plates donated by the local community.

An email sent out by the school said: “Please don’t care about the colour as we will be spray painting them her favourite colour along with the school colours.

“We are hoping that every child in the school will make at least one flower for her.”
