The stadium screens displayed Daniel’s image alongside banners reading “R.I.P Daniel,” serving as a poignant reminder of the impact he had on fellow supporters.

Until his untimely passing, Daniel attended Bancroft’s private school in Woodford Green, the same school attended by another victim of recent violence, Grace O’Malley-Kumar.

Daniel’s life was tragically cut short as he left home for school, becoming the victim of a senseless attack by a man wielding what appeared to be a Samurai-type sword.
