Football is often seen as one of the universal languages of the world that can bring people and whole communities together in a time of need, and West Brom are experiencing their own incredible story this week.

A tale went viral this week on social media after a West Brom fan donated a spare ticket to Shaun, a homeless Baggies supporter who has never seen the Albion live and was able to attend his first-ever match, with pictures of the delighted Shaun at the Hawthorns tugging at the internet’s heartstrings.

Are West Brom fans the best in the Championship?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And the latest update following this heartwarming tale is that the Geoff Horsfield Foundation, as reported by The Express and Star, are seeking to find Shaun permanent residence whilst some fans have launched a GoFundMe page to raise funds to give Shaun a West Brom season ticket.

The story was beloved by West Brom supporters on social media, and here is what plenty of them had to say on Twitter…

Over £1,000 has been raised so far to help Sean get a season ticket, and the GoFundMe page can be found at www.gofundme.com/f/help-sean-get-a-season-ticket for any supporter looking to support a fellow Baggie.
