Surprise meeting with Footballer for Gavin

10th Feb 2016


A service user at Heathcotes Wigston was lucky enough to meet Leicester City Football Club star, Riyad Mahrez in Leicester last week.


Gavin had enjoyed a walk around Abbey Park in Leicester with his support staff when the pair decided to go for dinner at a local restaurant where they bumped into Mahrez. The meeting happened just before Leicester’s match against Manchester City last weekend which resulted in a 3-1 win for the club, including a goal from Mahrez himself.


Gavin was particularly excited as Mahrez is currently fourth in the Premier League top goal scorer list for this season and has helped Leicester City become top of the league.


Mahrez took the time to have a photograph taken with Gavin which rounded off a lovely day nicely.


Good luck Mahrez and Leicester City!
