Moment Reggie Aslin leads out Grimsby Town – and meets his best pal

This is the wonderful moment little Reggie Aslin led out his Grimsby Town heroes on Saturday afternoon.

As reported by Grimsby Live, Reggie, 7, suffered a series of devastating strokes earlier this year, following surgery for his complex heart condition. But following a strong recovery, he was able to join the players on the pitch ahead of the away clash with Walsall.

The occasion was special in more ways than one: Reggie was joined by his “best pal” Alfie Donnelly, 10, who has a similar heart condition and who led out the Walsall side. The boys became friends through a support group, but had never met in person before.
