Southampton FC fan reunited with missing Wembley

Southampton FC fan reunited with missing Wembley ticket

Ema Barker, 33, of Shirley, was wrongly sent a matchday ticket – meant for Jason Neale – in the post and appealed to the Echo to help raise awareness of the unique cast of mistaken identity.

Fortunately for Ema, Jason, 51 – who lives in Yeovil – and his 22-year-old son Joseph, saw the appeal with the latter collecting the ticket on his dad’s behalf from the Echo offices, two days before the big day.

Daily Echo:

Joseph told the Echo: “My dad has been following Saints a lot longer than I have.

“It’s really special because it will be his first time seeing the team at Wembley – actually it will be the first time for both of us – we’ve been desperate to go so we’re really excited.

“The fact we thought we’d lost the ticket and managed to be reunited with it means the world.”

He added: “More than anything now we want to see Saints promoted back to the Premier League, hopefully it will be a memorable day.”
