Everton Fan Tweets Excitement At Watching Game For First Time, Game Is Cancelled But He Gets To Meet Roberto Martinez Instead

For Ric Wee, tonight’s Everton against Crystal Palace match would have been the first time he watched his beloved Blues live in action.

See, he even Tweeted a little selfie to show us all how excited he was to be at Goodison Park:

Then this happened:

You can imagine there were quite a few football fans who had a little laugh to themselves as they pictured Ric’s face reading that announcement.

His original Tweet has well over 2,000 Retweets – and thankfully it caught the eye of Helen Mayo, press and PR officer for the club, who posted this message shortly after:

Shortly after, he was taken to meet Everton boss Roberto Martinez and star left-back Leighton Baines:

That capped a whirlwind night for Ric – but one he will definitely remember.

The power of Twitter in all its glory, ladies and gentlemen.
