A young fan missed out on the club’s open training session yesterday after his mother was rushed to hospital.

Hearing about the news, Garry Monk replied personally to the tweet, and invited the kid to meet the players at the training ground instead:

Fans were united in their praise for how the manager and the club handled the situation:

Verdict:

The connection between the fans and the club is extremely important, and it’s clear that our current manager understands this completely.

To be successful, everyone has to be pulling in the same direction, the supporters, players, management staff and the owners, and this is a great gesture that will be remembered by the young supporter.

It helps promote a sense of unity. It’s easy for divisions to emerge among such a vast fanbase but I think every fan is firmly behind what Monk is attempting to accomplish at the moment.
