The teenager wrote a list of 12 Christmas wishes to make this festive season one of the best for all the children at the hospice. Among the 12 was a visit from the Seasiders, and captain Spearing and his team-mates were only too happy to make that dream come true.

Skipper Spearing said: “It’s been great to spend some time with Jack and talk all things football. Hopefully he’ll be able to tick off some more of his Christmas wishes.”

Jack has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and is a regular visitor to Brian House.
