Mansfield Town Football Club held a minute's silence ahead of their match against Morecambe on Saturday (August 10).
The silence was a mark of respect for Liam Peters, aged 18, who was stabbed in an incident on Gladstone Street on August 1.
Liam was taken to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre where he died a short time later.
A 17-year-old youth will stand trial accused of Liam's murder at the end of January next year.
Carolyn Radford, chief executive officer of Mansfield Town FC said: “As a club and community, we were devastated to learn of Liam’s death.
“Our heartfelt prayers and thoughts are with Liam’s loved ones at this heart breaking time. I can’t begin to imagine what they’re going through as a family.

“We stand together with Liam’s family in imploring people who are carrying and/or thinking of using knives to stop.
“We will do all we can as a football club, alongside Liam’s family, to help re-iterate the vital message that knife crime is wholly wrong and can cause lasting devastation.”
