Niko Muir’s final action before leaving Hendon to head for Hartlepool United was to make a seven-year-old supporter a very happy young man.
Muir had read on Twitter that a young supporter was likely to be very disappointed when he was told that Muir was leaving the club, and upon reading the tweet, contacted chairman Simon Lawrence to get contact details for the young fan’s Dad, who had posted the tweet.
Larence passed on the contact details, Muir got in touch with John Rogers and made arrangements to meet Rogers and his son, James, at the club yesterday.
Upon meeting, Muir handed over one of his signed matchballs that he’d collected during the season for his hat-tricks to James – the ball being the one from the win at Harlow Town in December, and spent some time talking to him.
