Stoke City say they have been 'saddened' by the news.

Chairman Peter Coates said: 'Mabel was a truly remarkable lady who will be sadly missed by everyone associated with the Club'.

Mabel, who was 93, attended almost every home and away match for many of the seasons since going to her first game back in 1949.
