Daryl Allinson: Yeovil Town boss Darren Way 'signs' teenage leukaemia patient
Signing for a professional club, being introduced to the media and meeting your team-mates for training - it's the stuff of dreams for millions of young footballers.
But a 13-year-old boy with a rare form of leukaemia has been given that full, transfer experience by League Two club Yeovil Town.
Daryl Allinson, from Frome in Somerset, is recovering after a successful second bone marrow transplant, following an initially unsuccessful first operation in 2015.
The Glovers presented him with a number one shirt with his name on the back, held a press conference to unveil him and then allowed him to join in with first-team training.
"Daryl is a fantastic role model for everyone," said Yeovil manager Darren Way. "A shining example of what positivity and fortitude can achieve.
"His determination, bravery and attitude during a difficult period has been inspiring."
Allinson's family had to raise the £100,000 needed to fund the second transplant and continue to do so.
He told BBC Points West: "It is things like this that really boost my spirits and really help."
