When Everton fan Matthew Ball lost his wallet prior to his team’s game at Leicester he probably felt it was the start of a pretty rubbish day.
Fortunately for him, Everton went on to claim a resounding 2-0 win at the King Power Stadium, and he was to get his wallet back via the first team bus – dreamy.
The 31-year-old had called his father to cancel his cards and got all the way back home to Liverpool before discovering Leicester City had tried to find him through Twitter.
@Everton we have found a Wallet belong to an Everton Supporter called Matthew Ball. Can he contact us please?— Supporter Services (@lcfchelp) December 26, 2016
To which he replied…
Leicester’s help service told Ball they had handed in the wallet to an assistant secretary on the official Everton team coach – which took the wallet back to Merseyside in style.
It is being kept at the Toffees’ Finch Farm training ground and Ball was told it still contains the £70 and sentimental items he left in there. He said he will collect it in the new year.
His father, David, told the Leicester Mercury: “In this day and age there’s so much negativity going on in football – I think the club and the city need to be praised. People need to know that good things like this happen.”
