Tiny Tilly Abraham has become the youngest-ever member of the Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust after being registered by proud father Annis less than forty eight hours following her birth.
Bluebirds fanatic Annis contacted the Trust the day after Tilly’s arrival and ensured that she joined mother Joanne and sisters Annaise and Alexandra on the membership roll.
Tilly, who weighed in at 6lb 9oz, was delivered at the University Hospital of Wales on 22nd October. Mum Joanne, 34, said: “No sooner was the baby born than her father was talking about buying her a Cardiff City season ticket and signing her up with the Trust.”
Author and publisher Annis, from Castleton, said: “The whole family are massive Bluebirds fans. I’ve been taking Annaise and Alexandra to City matches ever since they were babies, and Tilly will be visiting the new stadium before long.”
He added: “Annaise was less than three years old when she saw her first City game, while Alexandra was just eight months. My only regret is that Tilly won’t get to watch the Bluebirds play at Ninian Park like her sisters did.”
Supporters’ Trust membership secretary Dave Sugarman said: “We have plenty of young members, but it’s safe to say that Tilly is our youngest!”
