Football clubs can be an integral part of the lives of those who follow them, whether that person goes around the country watching them or do so from the comfort of their own home.
It is much easier for them to have an impact when they are on the pitch, but with the Premier League currently suspended, one Crystal Palace fan, who goes by J__CPFC has shown on Twitter how the club did that for their grandfather.
Someone phoned to check on him, and while that may seem like something small, it has clearly made its mark on that person.
Football clubs are pillars of their communities, and even when a ball is not being kicked, they can play an important role in supporting their fans.
The Eagles have shown a way of doing this, which should definitely be commended, and other Premier League clubs should be taking notes.
The Palace fan’s original post can be seen below:
