Alf Wells enjoyed a special day courtesy of Chelsea Foundation at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, markng his 100th birthday.

Wells, who is a lifelong Chelsea supporter, was treated day full of surprises which included tickets to the fixture versus Burnley, a signed letter from club captain Reece James, and a personalised 100 shirt presented to him by former players Ron Harris, Gary Chivers, John Bumstead, David Lee and Colin Pates (pictured top).

Following the match, Alf also made his way to the press room where he met with Mauricio Pochettino.

Alf said: ‘This has been out of this world, I can’t thank everyone enough for what they have done for me, everyone has been so nice. I actually had a dream last night I would be spending the day at Chelsea, so I wrote it down on a piece of paper and the dream has come true.’

Wells, who worked for Great Western Railway for nearly 50 years, made his way to the stadium with neighbour and friend Wendy Seddon.

She said, ‘Our friendship grew during lockdown when I helped Alf with shopping. I wanted to give him a 100th birthday to remember, and as a lifelong Chelsea fan, there was no better way for Alf to spend it. I’m sure he will remember this forever.’
