Our Famous Pitch Invaders Return!

20 May 2014

Bill and Maureen came down to meet the lads and wish them well for Wembley!

You may remember the story of Bill and Maureen Measure, the couple whose story went viral when they were photographed on the pitch at the Matchroom Stadium last week.

In case you missed it, you can catch up on the story here

Following the publicity the pair received the Club got in touch with them this week to invite them down to watch training and meet the players. Bill and Maureen, from Leytonstone, met all of the players and staff who happily signed autographs and posed for photos on Tuesday morning.

TalkSPORT, who first tracked down the couple through the Colin Murray Show last week also kindly bought them a pair of tickets that they picked up ahead of the big final on Sunday. 

The Club also kitted them out in Wembley t-shirts, and both could scarcely hid their delight at their busy morning.

"We've had a wonderful morning and we can't really believe all of this," said Maureen. "We're very grateful and can't wait for Sunday now, it's all so exciting."

Meanwhile Bill had a message for the players when he spoke to them as they came off after training: "We're so proud of everything you've done as a team this season and whatever happens we'll support you through thick and thin."
