- Adam meets Aaron Mooy
- Aaron welcomed Adam to PPG Canalside on Friday
- Comments from Adam's father and Aaron Mooy
Huddersfield Town midfielder Aaron Mooy welcomed the young supporter who enclosed a £5 note for him in a letter at PPG Canalside on Friday afternoon.
Adam’s story gained national interest having stumbled upon the £5 note in the stands at last Saturday’s game. Instead of keeping it, the youngster decided to enclose it in a letter to Town’s Commercial Director, Sean Jarvis.
In his letter the youngster spoke of how he had given the £5 note to his Dad as he couldn’t keep what was not his, going on to ask if the manager could pass it on to Aaron Mooy for his goal scoring performance in last Saturday’s victory over Manchester United.
Aaron was on hand to welcome Adam and his family to PPG Canalside on Friday afternoon with gifts before the squad departed for Liverpool ahead of tomorrow’s match at Anfield.
The £5 that was sent to Aaron was donated to the Club’s own charity, The Town Foundation and will go towards helping other young children in the surrounding area.
Adam’s father Mo commented:
“It was a great day, Adam was really shy to begin with but really enjoyed the experience. They took him into the training ground area where he met a few players and Aaron himself.
“They then took him into the players’ lounge where he met Tommy Smith, Tom Ince and a few of the other lads, he got a real heroes welcome. People were high fiving him and made him feel really welcome.
“He had a nice chat with Aaron and told him that he’s got to eat a lot of healthy food because he’s going to score 5 goals tomorrow.
“I would like to thank everyone at Huddersfield Town for making my boys day, as a family we are truly humbled”
Town midfielder Aaron Mooy commented:
“It was great to receive such a fantastic letter, he clearly has fantastic values and it was really great to finally meet him. Adam was a really nice lad and is a real credit to his family"
