Manchester United gift just the ticket for Trowbridge heart scare teen
Quinton Barham is preparing to watch the footballers he idolises after being invited to watch his team Manchester United play against Arsenal at Old Trafford stadium next month.
Quinton, 14, of Hyde Road, Trowbridge, is back playing football for Bradford on Avon Town Youth after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch at Bromham in February.
Manchester United heard about the plight of the Clarendon Academy pupil at the time and sent their best wishes.
And he has now been given four tickets by Manchester United manger David Moyes to the big Premier League clash on Sunday, November 10.
He is planning to take his mum and dad, Debbie and Paul, who stayed by his bedside during his month-long stay at Bristol Children’s Hospital, where he underwent a heart bypass. He is also taking his uncle Kevin.
Quinton said he will not be wearing his Manchester United shirt signed by Fabrice Muamba when he was recovering, because it was safe in his bedroom with his letter from Sir Alex Ferguson and signed autographs from the players, which he also received while recovering.
Paul Barham said: “Not many people have had a letter from Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes in the same year.
“We will have a tour of the stadium and Quinton hopes to shake a few hands.
“He can now play a whole match and at a check-up last week, doctors said it was a miracle he was alive, let alone playing football.”
