Saw this on Twitter and thought I'd share. Rather nice and touching. Love The Arsenal!

Last night I took my son to Arsenal for his first match. He was buzzing all day for it. I wasn't sure if it he'd ever go as he has autism. Once we were in the ground he struggled with about 50,000 people shouting and was having a hard time. Halfway through the 1st half I could see he wasn't going to get used to it so we had to leave. When we left the stadium, a steward (blonde lady, wish i got her name) , asked why we were leaving and I told her. She asked me to hold on and contacted someone else. Next thing I know, we're being walked towards club level. They've got a sensory room there where we could watch the rest of the match. The bloke running the room, Luke Howard, was fantastic with everyone in there and between him and the stewards that helped, turned the night into a great memory.

No probs Bill I actually have an autistic son myself. Never tried talking him to a game just knew he wouldn’t manage it especially well he was much younger.

Brilliant story Yard mate, thanks for sharing.

In a football world where money so often trumps everything else it's really good to hear such a fantastically positive story where club employees go above and beyond for people, and its even nicer for to hear about it when it happens at The Arsenal ????????????.

100% Bill mate, showing kindness and compassion to others is when we humans show ourselves in our best light.

Excellent story and what a fantastic job by the caring steward. That’s a special employee especially as so many people leave the ground early. I guess that early was a surprise….
