Imps help three-year-old fan achieve his dream

Three-year-old Imps fan, Oscar achieved a lifelong dream of being able to score a goal at Sincil Bank Stadium during Tuesday night's Carabao Cup tie against Everton.

Oscar was diagnosed with severe brain damage three years ago, and his life support machine was turned off. Against the odds, Oscar survived.

Three years on Oscar clearly had other ideas! The family have had our ups and downs; some major highs and some very low lows, quad cerebral palsy, Infantile Spasms, severe reflux, global developmental delay, microcephaly, dystonia, hip operations, tube feeding... the list goes on but Oscar has surpassed any expectations we initially had, especially for a child who wasn’t supposed to be here. 

Oscar is a happy, cheeky, gorgeous 3 year old and although he can’t sit, walk, talk, eat or do any of the other things a neuro typical three-year-old can do, he knows who he knows, makes his views known and has a strong personality. He is happiest when around family and at Sincil Bank! Football is his love and being at Lincoln City makes him happy. 

Oscar's Dad had some leg braces made to help Oscar kick a ball, and a dream of Oscar's is to score at Sincil Bank.

And, Lincoln City Football Club made that happen at half-time on Wednesday night...
