Simon Routier, an avid Manchester United fan, was offered two tickets to the game by Inspector Sian Gidley and PC Will Labey to see the Red Devils host Everton tonight.
Insp Gidley and PC Labey have been season ticket holders at Old Trafford for three years but, unable to attend Tuesday night’s game, decided to donate their seats to Mr Routier after seeing a Facebook post about how much he loved Manchester United.
Simon’s father added that his son was ‘already so excited about the trip’ and that he expected everyone at Les Amis would be ‘hearing about his football experience for many years to come’.
