Football plays a huge part in many peoples lives and it has the ability to make or ruin your day. There's nothing worse than watching your team lose but you soon forget it when the good times come around every so often. The love people have for their football clubs is quite incredible and it's remarkable to see what their team can do to impact their moods and lives. This Saturday Championship league leaders Sheffield United did something fantastic, in helping one of their oldest supporters fulfil a lifetime dream of playing for the Blades.
90 year-old Frank Coulson has been watching his beloved United for 80 years and his support for the club is second to none. He loves his team with a passion and still manages to attend home games alongside his daughter, this is despite being diagnosed with Dementia. Frank's desire to watch his club and battle against his diagnosis is truly inspiring and his fight was rewarded at Bramall Lane on Saturday when he got finally live out that dream of his.
During half-time in Sheffield United's 4-2 win over Wigan Athletic on Saturday he was invited onto the pitch to the delight of the home fans at Bramall Lane. He was taken over to the Kop where he cooly converted a pass to score and in turn get a huge reception from the elated supporters. Frank looked absolutely made up and it was a truly heartwarming moment, which evidently meant absolutely everything to him. After slotting home his first goal for the Blades he enjoyed the remainder of the game in the directors box, where he got to see cult hero Billy Sharp round off his hat-trick to send the Blades top of the league - perfectly rounding off the day for a wonderful guy.
Sheffield United's official twitter account produced a wonderful video to document Frank's goal which you can watch below: (Credit: @SUFC_tweets)
