Offers of Tottenham Hotspur matchday seats pour in following last wish of Bushey man Glenn Philips
Spurs fans have offered dozens of matchday seats to dying man from Bushey following his request to watch his team play one last time at White Hart Lane.
Emails and phone calls have been pouring into the Watford Observer office offering tickets and corporate boxes since Glenn Philip’s made his appeal in the paper last week.
Mr Philips was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2011. Roughly 50 per cent of people with the condition die within 14 months of diagnosis.
There is no known cure and those with MND experience the motor nerves of neurones in the brain and spinal cord being affected leading to loss of mobility, difficultly with speech, swallowing and breathing.
He said: "Going to Spurs is a part of life I can’t do any more. I am not well enough to be in my season ticket seat outside. My muscles have wasted. That means I get bitterly cold, colder than anyone can imagine.
"It is my greatest dream to be part of the crowd again, feel the atmosphere, and be back at the club that has given me so much and so many memories."
As well as seats in the west upper stand, readers have offer suites and corporate hospitality boxes for Mr Philips and his family.
