A YOUNG Barrow fan will be meeting all of his heroes after catching the attention of manager David Dunn.

Still gutted that he cannot be in the ground cheering on The Bluebirds, nine-year-old Finley White asked his mum Stacey Cosgrove to drive him around Holker Street after Barrow’s 1-1 draw with Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Hoping that he could see a few of his heroes, Ms Cosgrove later revealed that they did not see any players leaving the ground.

She said on Twitter: “Think the boy is missing going to watch Barrow AFC.

“This afternoon he made me drive round and round and round the stadium wanting to see some of the players coming out after the game, but unfortunately we didn’t catch any of them.”

However, following the game David Dunn came across the tweet and decided to reach out.

Dunn replied by offering Finley to come to the club for a day as a guest, so he can meet the players.

He said: “It just came up on my Twitter feed, someone that I know must have liked it or retweeted it and I came across it.

“Having four kids myself I have realised it is difficult times for children at the moment and when I saw his mum’s tweet, I thought that I would like to do something.”

Dunn continued by sympathising with fans, who have been banned from entering stadiums since March due to Covid-19 regulations, and hopes their return will be sooner rather than later.
