Frontman meets young season ticket holder to present new shirt

Macauley Bonne surprised 13-year-old Maddy with a brand new Town shirt this afternoon.

Maddy, who has severe cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus, is a huge Blues fan and was rushed to Adenbrokes Hospital last month due to pressure building on her brain from a failing shunt.

Before being taken to hospital, Maddy was wearing her beloved Town shirt, meaning the paramedics had to cut it open upon arrival.

Following two successful operations, she has been recovering at home, albeit without her prized possession.

Now, though, she will have a brand new top after her favourite player, Macauley, presented her with a shirt at Portman Road today.

As well as a shirt to wear, Maddy's family were also gifted a shirt signed by the Blues first-team, which they plan to frame at home.

Maddy is planning to wear her new shirt for the visit of Shrewsbury Town on Saturday, when she will be sat in her season ticket seat in the Sir Alf Ramsey stand.

During her visit to the stadium this afternoon, Maddy showed Macauley said seat, and the striker has promised he'll give her a wave when the teams emerge from the tunnel just before 3pm.
