04 Apr “A dream come true” for brave Celtic fan
An inspirational Hoops fan had their wish granted thanks to the ‘Eze Wishes’ initiative launched by Celtic’s Official Club Partner, Eze Group.
Declan Mount nominated his brother Jordan, from Glasgow, to watch Celtic in action at Lennoxtown Training Centre, before having a behind-the-scenes tour of state-of-the-art facilities and lunch.
Jordan, aged 16, was nominated for his second to none support shown to Celtic, despite suffering from hurler syndrome – a rare disease of metabolism in which a person cannot break down long chains of sugar molecules.
Declan said: “With all what Jordan has been through, he has always remained positive and is one of the happiest young adults I know. He is also a die-hard Celtic fan as he attends all the home games and even most of the away games.”
Jordan and his dad, James, both watched their sporting heroes in action, before having a tour of the impressive training centre – they also managed to pick up the players autographs after lunch.
Jordan said: “I’ve had one of the best days of my life so thank you very much Celtic and Eze Group. The training facilities are incredible so it’s no wonder we’ve won the league!
“The whole day was a dream come true but the highlight was defiantly getting all the players autographs – I will cherish them forever.”
Also on the day, longstanding supporter Charles Connor won the treat, as well as Kelsie Wood for overcoming adversity.
‘Eze Wishes’ recognises and rewards those fans who go the extra mile, whether it’s by overcoming adversity, working in the community or through their outstanding support for the club over the years.
Eze Group CEO Dominic O’Reilly said: “We are so pleased all three winners enjoyed their special treat. It’s so important to us that we reward fans who have been an inspiration, or who have shown tremendous support to Celtic Football Club.”
