West Ham captain Mark Noble has donated signed boots to a war veteran and a lifelong fan of the club Matty Wollard. The fans is limbless after serving in Afghanistan.
Afghan veterans visited the club’s Chadwell Heath training ground where they bumped into the lifelong West Ham star. Blesma – the limbless veterans’ charity who rehabilitates them and provides financial support when necessary – were on a visit but the Premier League star stopped for a chat on his way home. For one of the group members, Noble decided to offer him a pair of signed football boots.
Wollard lost his leg on his first tour to Afghanistan while with the Royal Anglican Regiment. He has been a lifelong fan of the club.
