Luke, who will turn 12 in a few weeks, had popped in last month in the hope of meeting some of the players – including his favourite Scott Martin!
However, when Luke visited the lads had finished up for the close season, so we decided to surprise him and bring him back in when the players were back to work.
Luke, who starts Lanark Grammar in August, was thrilled when he got the call and said he “barely slept all week” before coming in.
The youngster enjoyed watching head coach John Rankin put the players through their paces, before then heading to the gym with the squad and then upstairs to the function suite for the players lunch.
Accies forward Dario Zanatta then invited Luke for a game of darts – where he defeated both Dario and his favourite player Scotty!
Luke was also presented with two signed footballs – one from the entire team and a second signed by Scott Martin and another of his favourite players from last season, Lewis Spence, who was happy to pop in and sign the ball for Luke before heading off for pastures new.
Luke’s mum and dad Teresa and Andrew, who are also season ticket holders, said: “A huge thank you to Hamilton Accies for inviting Luke back to meet the team. We had an amazing day – one that he will never forget.
“Each and every Accies player was just amazing with him and to see him meet and mingle with them was very special. He’s also delighted to have beaten Scott and Dario at darts!”
We’re thrilled that Luke and his family enjoyed their special day at our Club.
