Chelsea youngster Charlie Wakefield has bought his father a £25,000 Jaguar XE for his 50th birthday just to say “thank you” for his support.

The 18-year-old signed his first professional deal with the Blues as a 17-year-old and he took to Instagram to issue a heartfelt “thank you” message to his dad for his support over the years.

He wrote on Instagram on a post that showed his dad with the new car: “This picture says a lot. My dad turned 50 years old today and after 2 years of planning his surprise birthday present, the day finally came. I wouldn’t of got as far as I have without this man, I owe him everything.

“To think he’s not missed one of my football matches from the age I started playing, which was 8.. whether the game was round the corner, or 6 hours away.”

“To think of the miles he must of driven, especially in his second hand 03 plate Ford Focus… how it’s survived so many long journeys I’ll never know.

“He’s always loved luxury cars, but never been able to get one, so to be able to buy him his dream Jaguar car for his 50th birthday, couldn’t of worked out any better. Now he’ll enjoy the long journeys up north.”

Charlie’s dad, Mark can now ditch his 14-year-old Ford Focus and arrive to games in style.

The full-back has been a key part of the Blues FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League successes as he eyes progression into the first team.

This picture says a lot. My dad turned 50 years old today and after 2 years of planning his surprise birthday present, the day finally came. I wouldn't of got as far as I have without this man, I owe him everything. To think he's not missed one of my football matches from the age I started playing, which was 8.. whether the game was round the corner, or 6 hours away, he'd scarifies anything or anyone, just to make sure he got to my games to support me, no matter what. To think of the miles he must of driven, especially in his second hand 03 plate Ford Focus… how it's survived so many long journeys I'll never know. He's always loved luxury cars, but never been able to get one, so to be able to buy him his dream Jaguar car for his 50th birthday, couldn't of worked out any better. Now he'll enjoy the long journeys up north 😂. He's watched my journey from the beginning, kept me humble, believed in me, and taught me everything I need to know over the years. He deserves everything and I can't thank him enough. Everyone I know loves him. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Dad, and the man I've always looked up to. love you 💙 Also thank you to www.rivervaleleasing.co.uk & @nailard for arranging it all, really appreciate it. Quality service 🙌🏻

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
