Having been diagnosed with neuroblastoma – a rare form of child cancer – players, supporters and staff rallied around the Caton family.

Collections at the London Stadium and donations from the likes of joint-chairman David Sullivan helped in providing treatments to battle the disease.

Isla was a mascot for West Ham’s Premier League game at home to Bournemouth in January 2018.

She was later named in the West Ham squad for their Boxing Day fixture against Southampton by which time – having been declared cancer-free in 2019 – the illness had returned and she died on the morning of January 25.

Millwall and West Ham have traditionally shared an intense rivalry which was started as the Dockers derby, as both sets of supporters were predominantly dockers at shipyards on either side of the River Thames.
