Chelsea will receive the Premier League trophy today after securing the title twice in three years.
The man with the honour of handing the Premier League trophy to John Terry and Gary Cahill later today at Stamford Bridge is 21-year-old Chelsea foundation coach Tom Horrigan.
Horrigan has been involved with Chelsea since the age of 12, volunteering at Chelsea for several years before eventually joining the Chelsea Foundation. He will be given the opportunity to hand the trophy to Terry and Cahill after he was nominated as Chelsea’s Premier League Kicks Hero.
“I’m made up to be named the Premier League Kicks Hero for Chelsea. It’s a fantastic honour and I love the comic book that’s been drawn to show my journey through Kicks,” Horrigan said.
“It shows a lot of the most important moments in my life. This is after Chelsea also nominated me to receive the Peter Osgood award this year for my community work. It’s all a bit surreal!
“Presenting the Premier League trophy to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge is a dream come true for me. I can’t thank the club and the Premier League enough for allowing me to do it and it will be something to tell the grandkids one day.”
