Magpies share heartwarming moment with young fan


//

An emotional Adam Treloar has dedicated Collingwood’s comprehensive Friday night win to a young fan suffering from brain cancer.

Six-year-old Kyron McGuire captured the hearts of a nation during the week when footage surfaced of an emotional club visit where he got to meet his heroes, and McGuire was given the opportunity to take part in Collingwood’s pre-game festivities at Marvel Stadium.

Speaking to Seven following the match, Treloar admitted that learning the story of McGuire’s condition was heartbreaking.

“When I met him two days ago and I heard the story about the little fella, it breaks your heart and it makes you appreciate everything that we have,” he said.

“I get to play football and I get to live my life and (there’s) this poor little fella here. Obviously for his family too.

“The family are massive Collingwood people and I know little Kyron here loves the footy club so to show him around the club on Thursday was very special for us and touched a lot of us and it makes you appreciate everything that we have.

“For him to be with us today, to run out with us and to hold his hand and give him a hug, I know he loved it.”

Following the match, McGuire was chaired off the ground by Treloar and Magpies captain Scott Pendlebury as cameras showed his father overcome with emotion. He was later also allowed to take part in the victorious club song.

McGuire was diagnosed with brain cancer 18 months ago, but his parents received the heartbreaking news of his condition becoming terminal a fortnight ago.

Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury gave the youngster a custom Collingwood jersey as a special gift during his visit and he was seen wearing the jersey celebrating the Magpies’ brilliant win.
