Tommy Skidmore was the club's special guest at the training ground on Thursday.

The football club welcomed a special guest to the Mick George Training Academy on Thursday afternoon with youngster Tommy Skidmore spending time behind the scenes meeting the players and management.

Tommy has goldenhar syndrome and due to his complex health needs spends a lot of time in and out of hospital. He has recently been struggling with his self-esteem and learning to accept that he has this condition. To keep that determined smile on his face, Tommy spent time in the company of his favourite team.

Tommy’s family got in touch to say what a wonderful day it was: “It was like a dream come true for Tommy, all of the players made it an amazing experience and it was definitely a day to remember. He loved meeting Danny Lloyd and he loves Omar Bogle.”

After a tour and a chance to watch a bit of the training session, Tommy had lunch with the players before having pictures and getting his Posh shirt signed. He also then helped Omar and Danny in a pool game.
