Luke's Surprise For Archie

Fan given mascot dream for weekend fixture

5 December 2018

Colchester United captain Luke Prosser paid a special visit to supporter Archie Turner on Tuesday afternoon ahead of Saturday's game v Macclesfield.

Luke visited Archie at home in Southminster to surprise him with the news that he would be the mascot for the U's game against the Silkmen. 

Archie and his family will be the U's guests at Saturday's game, thanks to the great work of The Dream Factory.

The Chigwell based charity was founded to brighten the lives and encourage hope for children and young adults aged 3-25 years, who have either life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, or who suffer from severe disabilities.

And Archie's dream of being a Colchester United mascot will be the 450th dream that the charity has granted since its formation.

Luke presented the 15-year-old, who has Merosin-Deficient Muscular Dystrophy with his mascot package and a framed signed shirt ahead of Saturday's visit.

The Dream Factory have also organised for Archie and his family to arrive in a limousine, so it promises to be a memorable day for them all!
