There was a first for Free Kicks in August when we attended the European Super Cup Final between Real Madrid and Seville in Cardiff, our first game involving clubs from Europe. Ryan was nominated to us to receive a treat and we were delighted when our application through the ticket ballot was successful.
I met Ryan and his uncle, along with Stephen Morgan who had nominated him, at Newport station and we drove into Cardiff, where the atmosphere was building ahead of the game. Our seats were in a neutral area of the ground, where most of the Seville fans were gathered. The Real Madrid team was full of star names, Bale, James Rodriguez, Kroos, Benzema and of course Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored and celebrated right in front of us.
Ryan had a fantastic time at the game and we thank Stephen for nominating him.
