FOOTBALL: Jack’s in Blue heaven

JACK Eden is pinching himself after meeting his Chelsea heroes at Stamford Bridge last weekend.
The 11-year-old Abbeyfield School pupil was a matchday mascot for the Blues’ 4-1 Premier League victory over Norwich City and was invited into the dressing room pre-match, with South London-born dad Simon, a Chelsea mascot himself three decades ago.
Eden, who accompanied captain John Terry onto the pitch, said: “It was even better than I thought it was going to be but I was shaking when we went out of the tunnel.
“We went into the changing rooms and got pictures with all of the players before the game.
“I showed Eden Hazard my shirt with his name on the back and he laughed and said he was the best. I also asked if I could touch David Luiz’s hair.
“My dad was just as excited as I was and he had pictures with Frank Lampard, John Terry and (Fernando) Torres.’’
