Cairns with birthday surprise for young goalkeeper

19 February 2019

A young goalkeeper turned nine on Tuesday, and got a special birthday surprise from Fleetwood Town stopper Alex Cairns.

Aspiring goalkeeper Zak - who turned nine on Tuesday - was brought to the club's training ground by his grandad and brother, and was met by Town's number one Cairns. 

Alex presented Zak with a special pair of match-worn gloves - a special gift for the youngster who aspires to be a Cod Army number one in the future. 

Alex Cairns said: "It was great to meet Zak on his birthday.

"He will have to grow into the gloves over time as they're a bit big for him at the moment! It was great to know that him and his family are Onward Card holders and I'll be looking out for them at future matches, and keeping tabs on Zak's goalkeeping career."
