Dreams came true for a young Blantyre boy on Tuesday evening, when he was lucky enough to be chosen by Mastercard to walk out with the players at Anfield.
Adam McGovern (7), a pupil of St Joseph’s Primary School was overjoyed to walk out at THAT exciting Liverpool v Barcelona Champions League game. The lucky lad also plays football at Blantyre Soccer Academy 2012s.
The once in a lifetime opportunity came about when he won a competition and was 1 of 22 kids to walk out with the footballing stars.
His proud dad told us, “He was a happy boy to say the least and only found out a few days before.”
What a game that was too. Having gone into the game 3-0 down Liverpool needed to win by 4 goals to go onto the final and did exactly that.
Adam described the night as “the best ever”. It certainly was an experience he will never forget.
