I feel so grateful to be given chances like this. I took my kids to the go-karting event on Tuesday so it's really nice that they get these opportunities. It's a homely club and I'm proud to be a fan.

"With us both being Season Ticket Holders, it's a great chance to come down and meet these legends! They fell in love with Noah, so it was nice to get him closer to the Club."
