Welford Road inspires #MeetTheFamily

Figure image

Meet brothers William and Oliver, and their dad Darren, from Nether Broughton in Melton Mowbray who chatted to the #MeetTheFamily team earlier this season.

All season we’re asking fans about their Welford Road stories and why they love coming to watch Tigers in action.

William said: “I’ve had my season ticket for five years and we always run to try to stand in our spot on the terrace. We always try to catch the ball too, although Dad has caught it once!”

Darren added: “It’s 10 years since I first became a season ticket holder here and, like William said, we have always had a standing ticket for matches. It’s the old-fashioned way of watching but generates a great atmosphere. 

It’s great to be able to bring my boys along and share the experience."

Oliver told us: “My favourite player is Jonny May and it’s amazing to watch him run past players.”
