Earlier this month, 19-year-old Nathan Chubb enjoyed his first MK Dons match at Stadium MK.
Stadium MK was recently voted Level Playing Field’s ‘Best Away Fan Experience’ by football fans up and down the country.
Nathan, who has been a lifelong football fan, has Global delay with severe learning disabilities, speech and language difficulties, autism, hyper mobility, and Kypho-Scoliosis meaning he can tire easily as well as needing 24-hour-care.
Nathan has not let is disability stop his love for football and he’s always loved to play and watch the game. Due to his requirements, however, it has often difficult to attend matches.
So, his family opted for a matchday box experience to provide a quiet place for Nathan and the family to watch MK Dons’ recent game against Accrington Stanley.
Nathan was lucky enough to meet Mo Eisa, who joined the family pre-match for a chat and even give him a signed shirt, which he already cherishes.
“We were not sure if he would love it or hate it, but thanks to the Club for being so kind to him. He loved every second of it – and he even flew off his chair when the Dons scored!” Nathan’s Dad told mkdons.com.
What’s more, after staying in the hotel overnight, Nathan even got to meet Head Coach Liam Manning and Dean Lewington over breakfast.
Although a little nervous, Nathan was able to grab a quick picture with the duo, creating lifelong memories for a now big MK Dons fan. Nathan’s Dad summarised: “It was great to see him so happy. Even though we live two-and-a-half hours away, we will always now come and support MK Dons in person when we can”
