You should be proud

Saints fan in peace!

I thought I'd just post this about something that happened at the Gardens today.

In our block of the Church's stand at Franklins Gardens there is a group of STHs that know each other very well. There is a couple that sit next to my Dad who are getting on a bit - the wife more than the husband. She now uses two walking canes and to say she is frail is an understatement. Today because of the traffic on the M1 they arrived late and she made her way in to the ground about 10 mins in to the game on her own whilst her husband was parking the car.

As she started struggling up the stairs on her own (we're in the middle of the block so kind of stuck to help her ourselves), one of your own was coming down the stairs. He then stopped, checked if she was ok, then proceeded to help her up the stairs until she got to our row and then went on his way.

Obviously, we don't know who that is but you as a club and set of supporters should be proud to have such a kind and helpful person in your ranks. Personally its stuff like this act of kindness that makes me love Rugby all the more. If he is on here, I say thank you.

If you are ever in the Gardens again, you'll get a pint and a handshake off me.

Unlucky on the match today, but we both had to endure that ref - hopefully we'll get a proper one next time and it'll be another enthralling game!

Good luck for the rest of the season.

I'm not entirely sure you're just saying it for the free pint, Kentwasp! I remember what they/you looked like though. To be fair I'd probably just get you the pint for trying it on!!

All kidding aside, great touch and see you guys again soon.
