Birmingham City: Fans are showing love for Bobby

Birmingham City: Fans are showing love for Bobby

Sometimes supporters are reminded that there are far more important things than football, with the sport itself, at times, helping bring that to attention.

This is one of those scenarios, as young Birmingham City fan Bobby has been fighting a brain tumour for four years and has now finished his chemotherapy, as shown on Birmingham’s official Twitter account.

The club gave Bobby a few treats to mark the occasion, including a season ticket and he got quite the reception at his first game, when the Blues faced Bristol City:

The game ended in a 1-1 draw, with Bobby’s favourite player Lukas Jutkiewicz getting Birmingham’s goal, before Tommy Rowe equalised late on.

While it will have been frustrating to concede the goal in the 83rd minute, being able to share the game with Bobby will have cheered many up.

A selection of Twitter reaction to Bobby’s reception, including posts from proud Birmingham fans, can be seen below:
