A Dundee United fan is hoping fellow Arabs can help find his young nephew’s jacket after it was left behind at a recent game.
John Porter took six-year-old Dyllan to see the Terrors beat Ross County 1-0 in Dingwall on Saturday November 10.
However, an enjoyable day out seeing their beloved team was marred with the loss of the youngster’s waterproof.
John, 55, says his nephew wanted to take his coat off during the game to proudly show off his United strip underneath.
But, in the excitement of the Tangerines winning the match, Dyllan and John forgot to pick it up before leaving the ground and would have been left on or under their seat.
It is described as a black light waterproof jacket with a Dundee United crest on it and cost £28.99.
The coat also had six unique United supporters’ club badges on it, which Dyllan cherished.
John has since contacted both Ross County and Dundee United to see if anything had been handed in but neither club have been notified of a child’s jacket.
While asking for help from the Tele, John said: “We were in the United end just behind the goal.
“Dyllan was saying he was too hot so took his jacket off. It was only when we were on the bus down the road that I realised. I asked him ‘where’s your jacket?’ but being a typical child he shrugged ‘I don’t know’.
“It was my fault, I should have made sure he picked it up.”
John believes the jacket must now lie in the hands of a fellow Arab and has urged them to hand Dyllan’s jacket back.
He added: “He keeps going on about his jacket.
“I’m just hoping for a nice person to hand it back.”
Anyone who has the jacket can contact John on 07305358225. Or hand it in to Tannadice.
