Young Dale Fan Lives Out His Dream

8 July 2023

There was a special guest at First Team training earlier this week.

14-year-old Jamie, accompanied by his parents, was invited to watch a training session, before taking part in a few drills himself.

Jamie’s mother, Wendy, reached out to the club earlier this summer to explain that her son had experienced some difficult times at school in recent years.

A relatively new Dale fan, it was a dream of Jamie’s to meet the players and experience a training session. We were honoured to make this happen.

After meeting the backroom staff and the players as they entered the training pitch, Jamie – a keen footballer himself – observed as the players were put through their paces in the session.

Then it was time for the youngster to get involved and showcase his skills. Joined by Head Coach Jimmy McNulty, all-time Dale leading goalscorer Ian Henderson and Youth Team goalkeeper Lennon MacLorg, Jamie was put through his paces with a few drills before they took part in a penalty shootout.

Give our video a watch below via our official YouTube channel to see how Jamie’s day shaped up, as well hear from him and Wendy on their experience.
