This little lad's ecstatic reaction to getting Hull City tickets is absolutely brilliant

This is the heart-warming moment a nine-year-old Hull City superfan realises he’s been given tickets to go and watch his favourite team play for the very first time.

Logan Lindsay, from Hornsea, East Riding of Yorkshire, was told by his mum to shut his eyes and hold out his hands for an early Christmas surprise – and what a surprise it was.

Mum Kelly – who filmed Logan’s adorable reaction and is overwhelmed by the positive response she’s had from people on social media – said: “He’s supported Hull City for about five years but my husband is a chef and we don’t have much money and football is an expensive habit.

“He’s got the kit and boots but he’s never been to a live game. Yesterday we purchased him tickets for Christmas.

“I decided to film it because I knew he would be happy but I had no idea he would be so overwhelmed. It made me cry so I had to stop filming.”

Logan’s off to the match against Newcastle tonight with his dad David – here’s hoping for a Hull win!
