Youngster Meets Blackpool Players

Seven year-old Ben Brown had a day to remember at Bloomfield Road on Saturday, meeting the players and joining them on the pitch against Wigan Athletic. 

The Our Lady of the Assumption Primary School pupil was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour in 2011, and he is now sadly battling once again following a relapse in June. 

As his family now look to raise funds to take him to the USA for further treatment, the club invited Ben to Bloomfield Road for a 'Tangerine Dream Day' that saw him lead the team out as one of eight mascots. 

The experience followed a fundraising disco held by his school earlier this month that saw raffle prizes donated by Blackpool, Fleetwood Town and a host of other Blackpool businesses.
