#MeetTheFamily: "I spotted her wearing a Tigers shirt"

We’ve been getting to know the Tigers Family all-season long as part of our #MeetTheFamily campaign. 

Chatting to fans from all walks of life, we caught up with Miles Latham, his wife Katie and their young lad Jack from Sileby, who are life-long fans and season ticket holders in the Tryline Club.

Miles shared: “Before we met, we were both big Leicester Tigers fans. It wasn’t until we met at university in Oxford that we realised we only lived ten minutes away from each other back home in Leicester.

I spotted Katie in a bar and noticed she was wearing a Tigers shirt so it was actually a really good way to get chatting to her. That was 13 years ago and we’ve been married for four years now - so we owe a lot to Tigers.”

Katie added: “I first came down to Welford Road when I was six years old with my dad. One of my earliest memories is the 1993 Pilkington Cup final, where we all met in the Town Square and I got to sit near Dean Richards.

“We’ve been coming down together ever since we met!”

Joined by their two-year old son Jack, Miles said: “We bought Jack along to his first game at Welford Road when he was just three weeks old! It’s great because we’re able to bring him along to enjoy an amazing and safe atmosphere on matchdays. He’s already got a good throw on him – so you never know!
