U's midfielder visits young fan.

We hope that Jack and his family have a great Christmas!

Jack was given a signed shirt by Sammie and also received four tickets for the game v Walsall on January 17th, where he'll get to meet the U's players.

So Sammie took on the role of Father Christmas on Wednesday, visiting Jack to drop off some presents.

Mum Lisa wrote to the club asking whether it would be possible for Jack to meet the players to cheer him up, and also mentioned that Sammie was his favourite player.

Five-year-old Jack Sheehy has had a tough couple of months after breaking his arm at school, including several trips to London for physio treatment.

Colchester United midfielder Sammie Szmodics played Santa on Christmas Eve for one young fan ahead of the big day on Thursday.
