The start of December marked National Grief Awareness Week and first team player Kieron Morris surprised his number one fan Aiden.
National Grief Awareness Week is aimed to break the taboo and normalise grief and to ensure it becomes an easier topic to discuss for those who have lost and those who want to help the bereaved.
Aiden, who plays for the Tranmere Rovers in the Community Junior Disability team and volunteers as a coach for the Premier League Kicks session, lost his grandad back in September 2021.
Having found his love for Rovers through attending the games with his Grandad, traveling home and away, we wanted to surprise Aiden in order to bring him and his mum, who is also an avid fan, a little bit of happiness in what is a sad time for the family.
In order to do that, the family were invited down to Prenton Park on Saturday 18th December before Tranmere’s fixture against Leyton Orient for a tour of the stadium and waiting for them at the end of the tunnel was Rovers midfielder and Aiden’s favourite player, Kieron Morris.
Kieron presented Aiden with a signed shirt from all of the first team squad and two tickets to the game for him and his mum.
The team didn’t disappoint as a solo goal from Jay Spearing secured all three points to top off a fantastic day for Aiden and his mum.
