Salop surprise young fan going through chemotherapy

19 February 2024

Many fans will be familiar with Owen Norgrove's story.

After he began chemotherapy last week, Owen's mum took to Facebook to ask if anybody was able to help her get in touch with the club to see if we could help Owen watch our games safely as his immune system will be very low.

As an immediate gesture, we provided Owen with details to watch all our matches on iFollow so he wouldn't miss a kick if his treatment clashed with a game.

We were then told he would be coming to the Croud Meadow to watch Saturday's match against Wigan with his brother, so we decided to surprise him.

Owen thought it would just be the two of them.

But when he showed up at the stadium, he was greeted with a warm welcome from a hospitality box full of his family.

Salop player Elliott Bennett then entered the box pre-match to gift Owen with his match shirt and a season ticket for the 2024/25 season.

We hope Owen enjoyed his day and we wish him and his family all the best going forward.
