And they say chivalry in football is dead! Read the ‘Tyrone Mings gives tickets to fan’ tweets and think again.

Ipswich Town supporter Tris Monk tweeted that he was “skint” and wasn’t able to watch the game against Bolton on Saturday.

Apparently father-of-two Monk and his wife were saving to move house and he could not afford to spend the money for tickets.

Mings responded by providing two complimentary tickets for him and a friend.

A delighted Monk told BBC News:

It was just amazing.

It was completely out of the blue. When he asked me if I could get to the ground, I thought that it was a bit odd.

I was sat on the sofa with my wife when he offered me two tickets, I couldn’t believe it.

It just goes to show, with modern footballers, some do care about the fans.

It was quite surprising.
