Varns breaks the good news to the latest to carry out the matchball
Sam is nine and has older brothers, Bradley, 17 and George, 15, who is under the care of EACH [East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices].
Until recently Sam shared a bedroom with George and would keep an eye on his brother through the night to see if he ever needed anything.
A grown up nine-year-old, he is a kind and caring young man who loves football and at Ipswich Town we are delighted that he will be leading the teams out on Saturday, carrying the matchball as the Club’s Community Champion. Please give him a great ovation.
Town striker Luke Varney went to meet up with Sam and his family at his school, Rendlesham Primary, and give him the good news.
