WATCH | Tigers and Thomas Cook Sport surprise fan

Leicester Tigers players Tom Youngs, Sione Kalamafoni, Fred Tuilagi and Ross McMillan surprised young fan Harry Barker at the Leicester Royal Infirmary with hospitality tickets to Tigers' final home game of the season against Bath Rugby (Saturday, May 18, 4.00pm).

Thanks to club partner Thomas Cook Sport, the players bumped into Harry, who suffers with Type 1 diabetes , as he thought he was going to a routine check-up at the city hospital accompanied by his mum, dad and sister Grace, who also has Type 1 diabetes. 

Harry is a regular patient in the children's outpatients ward and the team at Thomas Cook Sport got in touch to surprise Harry and his family ahead of the club's last Gallagher Premiership game of the 2018/19 campaign. Both Harry and Grace play rugby for Melton Mowbray RFC, and Harry even took part in this year's Tigers Challenge. 

Watch the moment club captain Tom Youngs and the boys surprised Harry below - and keep an eye out next week to see how the Barkers enjoyed their matchday experience.

Match tickets for Tigers' final home game of the season are available by contacting the ticket office on 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or buying online below.
