WES' VISIT TO ELDERLY SUPPORTER

28 January 2022

Supporters urged to be mindful of fellow supporters at away matches

Tuesday night’s match winner, Wes Burns, paid a surprise visit to supporter, Ian Pells this afternoon.

74-year-old, Ian, was unfortunately caught up in amongst celebrations in the away end on Tuesday night at Plough Lane after Wes netted the opener in the Blues’ 2-0 victory at AFC Wimbledon.

Ian suffered minor injuries and was treated by the St John’s Ambulance medics outside the ground on Tuesday night which saw him miss Wes’ second goal, however, thankfully, he is now on the mend.

Wes, who has now scored three goals in his last two outings, surprised Ian with a visit to his home and presented him with a signed shirt.

The Club would like to thank supporters for their terrific support home and away this season, which has seen away ends sold out up and down the country, with further strong backings to come at Sheffield Wednesday and MK Dons.

There have been a small number of incidents reported from Tuesday night’s win at AFC Wimbledon, and the Club would like to urge supporters to be respectful and mindful of fellow supporters, particularly our elderly and disabled supporters.

The Club operates a ‘safe seating area’ for every away match for those who wish to sit at away fixtures. If you wish to find out more about the Club’s safe seating areas for future away matches, please email mainticketoffice@itfc.co.uk
