Lads make little boy's day with football in park

By Aaron Curran

A group of teenage lads made a young boy's day in a Merseyside park.

The group were enjoying a game of football on Warwick Park, Birkenhead, when a young boy nearby was playing with his mum. After deeming his mum 'not cool enough' anymore, the group of lads invited the young boy to join in their game- leaving him thrilled.

The boy's mum took to Facebook to share her thanks to the lads. In a post she said: "Just want to say a big massive thankyou to the 5 teenage lads in Warwick Park this afternoon who I'm sure would of much preferred to play their own lads game football but absolutely made my little boys day by letting him play football with them once mum wasn't cool enough to play with anymore!

"My boy really struggles in some social situations and with being accepted sometimes and you all have literally made his day letting him join in and being so good with him - I watched every interaction with him and you were all brilliant!

"He's so happy he got to wear the big boy yellow goalie gloves and the handshakes and high 5s afterwards - you should be very proud of yourselves! "

People were quick to commend the actions of the lads as they rushed to the comments. One comment said: "It really does do my heart good when I read about such lovely, thoughtful young people. What a credit to their parents!"

While another added: "Well done boys and well done mums and dads for having caring boys and to your son for having fun and socialising."
