A true star turn from Terry

Daily Express - - BARCLAYS PREMIER LEAGUE FOOTBALL: -

IT SEEMS that while Chelsea were not very char­i­ta­ble vis­i­tors to Hull on Wed­nes­day – romp­ing to a 3-0 win – John Terry was laud­ably gen­er­ous where it mat­tered.

Chelsea play­ers are so fiercely hid­den from the me­dia that word sel­dom gets out even of ‘good news’ sto­ries.

But Terry, Frank Lam­pard and Ni­co­las Anelka were spot­ted at the KC Sta­dium queue­ing to sign au­to­graphs for one young fan. What is more Terry, af­ter be­ing pho­tographed with Bradley Pal­lis­ter, 14, promised the boy, who is bat­tling mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy, his shirt af­ter the game.

True to his word, Terry spurned swap re­quests from Hull play­ers and sought out the young Chelsea fan at the fi­nal whis­tle.
