Friday night’s trip to West Brom was a different matchday experienceBCFC
Friday night’s trip to West Brom was a different matchday experience for the 12-year-old. Keaton is on the autism spectrum and in recognition of World Autism Awareness Week (1-7 April), he was invited to be the away mascot against the Baggies.
The Solihull youngster was treated to a VIP day out with his Blues heroes and favourite player Harlee Dean. Keaton was given the opportunity to meet Garry Monk’s squad in the dressing room, before walking out on the pitch with captain Michael Morrison.
“It felt amazing, it felt like it wasn’t real,” admitted Keaton.
“I met Garry Monk. He told me to come into the changing room and tell the boys what’s what!
“You could feel the atmosphere walking out. It just felt unbelievable, all you could hear was the Blues fans.”
Glad you had a fantastic time Keaton, Keep Right On!
