Players from Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa were seen gathering and comforting a young season ticket holder after an accident during the Remembrance Day tribute.
Before the kick-off of the Premier League match at the City Ground, a young season ticket holder, Caiden Storry, 16, took to the pitch to perform The Last Post on a trumpet.
After a near-flawless performance, the youngster struggled to hit the right notes in the latter part of the song, leaving some fans and players confused.
There was a brief moment of applause following Storry’s performance, before players from both teams consoled the youngster after the incident.
Sky Sports cameras also followed Storry as he returned to the tunnel and it was clear the teenager was visibly distraught over the end of the song.

Storry was going to play it since he was 13, but issues related to COVID-19 kept delaying things. Storry is usually in Trent End with his father.
Social media users quickly picked up on the incident and shared their well wishes with Storry after the incident.
‘Poor boy from Forest playing the trumpet for Remembrance Day. I’m not sure if it was a glitch or if the nerves just got to him, but something went wrong. Great act from both teams, who went up to the poor guy and said well done. Nice gesture, hopefully the boy knows he did a good job,” said one.
Another wrote: ‘The trumpet player at the Nottingham Aston Villa match was amazing. He can be incredibly proud. Someone gives him a big hug. You destroyed it boy’.
“No, I feel so sorry for that boy who played the trumpet, nice to see the fans and players cheering him up,” one user wrote.
The match saw the hosts take an early lead after Ola Aina drove a low effort past Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez into the bottom of the net in the fifth minute.
