That's lovely. (nt)
My eldest went to his first away match at Burnley for a pre season friendly. I managed to get some corporate freebie tickets which included pre match drinks in a lounge.
We were stood having drinks when the team came out to warm up and Chris (my son who must have been 6/7 at the time) asked if he could go down and get some autographs. Ground wasnít full so I said yes but come straight back.
What can only have been 5 minutes later another guy from across the lounge came over and said I should come to the window. My son had walked on to the pitch and was kicking the ball with the players. Panicking I ran downstairs by which time Walter was on the pitch talking to Chris. I shouted for Chris to get off which he did.
As he was leaving the pitch Walter then runs over to him. Apparently Chris had wandered off the pitch with Walters expensive pen. Pen returned Walter then calls over those players who hadnít given an autograph.
Great evening and I seem to recall we won.
