Jacob Jones Appeal
4-year-old Jacob has been fighting high-risk neuroblastoma cancer with an aggressive treatment regime since he was two. Despite this, sadly he relapsed in April 2016, which has meant more treatment.
As part of the pre-season fixture against the Premier League side, Jacob will lead the team out, have the chance to get player signatures before the game and then watch the game from the directors box with his family.
There will also be a bucket collection taking place around the ground for supporters to make a donation and #JoinJacobsFight.
