A football-mad youngster was treated to a ‘dream day’ with his Rovers heroes, in recognition of a special anniversary.
On April 24th 2011, shortly after his fourth birthday, Logan Prince was rushed to hospital, where he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.
The junior season ticket holder, from Accrington, now has to test his blood at least eight times a day and has a minimum of five daily insulin injections just to keep him alive.
Logan refuses to let the condition dictate his life and to celebrate the fact, his parents make a special day of the anniversary of his diagnosis – Logan’s D Day.
After contacting the club, the seven-year-old was invited to spend the day at Rovers’ Senior Training Centre, where he watched the first team train, was given a behind-the-scenes tour and had lunch in the players’ canteen.
To top off a memorable visit, Logan met manager Gary Bowyer and his favourite player Tommy Spurr, before being presented with a pair of Paul Robinson’s goalkeeper gloves.
