Foot­ball he­roes make boy’s wish come true

Daily Express - - News -

CF suf­ferer El­liott Raynor has had his wish come true when the eight-year-old’s beloved Le­ices­ter City stars came to see him in hos­pi­tal this week.

El­liott, of Thorn­ton, Le­ics, was all smiles as Bren­dan Rodgers’ team ar­rived at Le­ices­ter Royal In­fir­mary bear­ing gifts.

The lad is pic­tured above with (left to right) Danny Ward, Justin James, James Mad­di­son, Ben Chilwell (base­ball cap), and Matty James (back in grey top).

Elliot showed his sport­ing he­roes his in­tra­venous line, gave them high fives and beamed when mid­fielder Hamza Choudary gave him a bear hug.

El­liott said: “It was re­ally ex­cit­ing to see the play­ers up close in­stead of far away on the pitch and they were re­ally kind.”

His mother April Raynor said: “All the play­ers signed his shirt for him. When they en­tered the ward there was a real buzz and the smiles on the kids’ faces was a joy.”
