BRIDLINGTON Town welcomed a special guest to Queensgate at the weekend.

There was a surprise waiting for teenager Charlotte Black, who suffers from MS, when she was invited to be part of the Seasiders’ team photo.

Town chairman Peter Smurthwaite said: “Charlotte is a big Hull City fan but because of her condition she can’t get to the KC Stadium at the minute.

“She came to our friendly against Hull and had a picture with a couple of City players but she phoned me up and said she would like to come down to Queensgate again and meet the Brid Town lads.

“I introduced her to all the players and she had her picture taken.”

Also in the picture are two mystery men, known only as Les and Dave, who were at their first Town match. They claimed to be fans of the chairman’s regular appearances on Radio Humberside’s Sportstalk show and were invited to join the line-up.
