MS kicks off his Football 92 Journey in style!

12th Jun 2019

The most dedicated football supporters pride themselves on visiting as many different grounds as possible. It’s regarded as a true measure of their commitment to the beautiful game, but very few fans can claim to have been to all 92 English league stadiums. MS, a service user at Heathcotes Lutterworth, harbours an ambition to join that elite club and he kicked off his quest with outings to Nottingham Forest F.C and Doncaster Rovers F.C.

The trips certainly represented a fine start to the epic ‘Football 92 Journey’ which MS is undertaking with assistance from support worker, Lewis Beeken, and the rest of the team at Lutterworth.Doncaster Rovers staff spotted MS taking photographs outside the Keepmoat Stadium and invited him inside the turnstiles for a personal tour of the pitch! It was a very generous gesture and we are grateful to the club for their kind hospitality.

MS is a Leicester City fan and he did little to hide his allegiance on the visit to the City Ground, home to arch-rivals Forest.  His blue replica shirt was cheekily on display!

MS and Lewis are now busy planning the rest of the tour. He’s up and running with the goal firmly in his sights!
