A young Yeovil Town fan had an afternoon he would never forget yesterday.
Seven-year-old Clayton Singleton suffers from epilepsy and suffered a fit at the home game against Queens Park Rangers.
Clayton was rushed to the medical room in the players tunnel, where he received treatment before heading to Yeovil District Hospital.
Whilst in the medical room at Huish Park striker Paddy Madden gave Clayton his boots and had a photo with the youngster. But Clayton could not remember the Irishman visiting him, despite his mum taking a picture.
Yesterday Clayton and his mum Hayley visited Huish Park for a tour of the ground and to hold the Playoff trophy.
Half way through the tour the youngster had another surprise when his favourite player Paddy showed up to see how he was feeling.
With Clayton claiming he is a fast runner, Paddy challenged him to a race across the Huish Park pitch.
Paddy then presented him with a signed shirt and a signed photo of him in action from the Wembley Playoff final.
Mum Hayley said: "I would like to thank everyone at Yeovil Town Football Club for what they have done to make Clayton feel better. Special thanks to Paddy for taking time out from his afternoon off to spend time with us.
"Clayton has to live with epilepsy for the rest of his life and we don’t want anything to hold him back. I am very proud of how he deals with it on a day to day basis."
Today is Clayton’s seventh birthday and everyone at Yeovil Town Football wishes his a very happy birthday.
