When Garry met Kian…

Keep right on Kian!


A meeting with Garry Monk has firmly completed Kian Whiteside’s Blues bucket list.

The Blues boss personally arranged to see the eight-year-old prior to the match against Millwall and invited Kian and his family to an evening of hospitality.

The Shard End youngster, who has a terminal illness, visited the Trillion Trophy Training Centre last week to meet his favourite players Jota and Lukas Jutkiewicz, as part of his bucket list challenge.

Kian was given a warm welcome by Garry and his coaching staff of Pep Clotet, James Beattie, Darryl Flahavan and Sean Rush. The Timberley Academy pupil wished Garry a belated birthday, as well as receiving a unique signed pennant from Garry.

Kian was also reunited with his hero Lukas Jutkiewicz and Jota, as he was given a tour of the dressing room.

Keep right on Kian!
