Before Christmas Isaac Hewitt sent in an amazing Christmas card, to the Chairman, who was extremely appreciative of the kind gesture, with the card finding a home on his desk over the festive period.
He noted “knowing that it’s been on his desk it’s brilliant”
In response to this Ollie Banks, sent over a video message thanking him for designing the card and for his support. As a gesture of his gratitude, Ollie invited Isaac to our League One game against Portsmouth so he could meet him.
Isaac made the trip with his Mum and Dad who also support the Rovers.
Before the match started the Hewitt family were able to head pitch side where they met with Ollie who took some photos with them to remember their day.
Isaac said “having seen him playing on the pitch and then meeting him feels amazing”.
Ollie was not the only player they were able to meet, as new signings Andy Cook and Alex Woodyard also popped over to see the young fan and take some photos.
Following this, he made his way into the changing room to meet the rest of the squad. Here he also got autographs from the players and had his shirt signed by his favourite player, Manny Monthe.
His tour did not end there, following his trip to the changing room, Isaac headed over to the managers room where he was able to meet Micky Mellon.
We spoke to Isaac and his Dad about designing the card and their support for the club.
Isaac talked about how everyone talks about Tranmere to him, including his table tennis coach “he always talks about Tranmere news and he was really happy when we scored three goals against MK Dons"
His Dad also mentioned that “the whole of his class… their second team’s now Tranmere”.
He went on to say that his support for the club started when he “was at university across here, started coming across and seeing the club regularly, from then onwards we’ve kind of been a Tranmere family haven’t we and it’s going to games and just enjoying the journey we’ve been on really, it’s great stuff”
We are glad the Hewitt family had a great day and thank Isaac again for his card.
