Big City Christmas Surprise: Yvonne's story

More To Watch

For our final Christmas surprise, Manchester City heroes past and present visited fan Yvonne O'Connor...

Yvonne and her husband, David, had been season ticket holders for 30 years but he sadly died of cancer in May. Unable to face sitting in the stands alone, Yvonne gave up her season ticket and hadn't been back to the stadium since.

But after David's brother contacted City, we decided to bring Yvonne back into the community she was a part of for so long to give her a day to remember.

She was picked up from her home by former City striker Paul Dickov and then met by Mike Summerbee, Andy Morrison, Ian Brightwell, Richard Edghill and current first-team star Benjamin Mendy. She enjoyed the 4-0 win over Bournemouth from a box with her family as an extra surprise too.
