Thatcher tributes left to individual clubs

The Premier League and Football League will not be asking clubs to hold a one-minute's silence in memory of Baroness Thatcher at their upcoming fixtures. The former prime minister died in London on Monday, aged 87, after suffering a stroke.

There was no minute's silence before Monday night's Manchester derby between Manchester United and Manchester City.

As well as Premier League games this weekend, the FA Cup semi-finals take place at Wembley, which come under the auspices of the Football Association.

It is understood the FA has no plans at present to mark Lady Thatcher's death.

It will be left to individual clubs to decide whether they want to pay tribute.
