Sitting in the stands at the Sydney Swans’ recent clash with Carlton, spectator Jonathan Drennan overheard something “beautiful”.
Nearby, a young boy was commentating the game, play-by-play, for a visually impaired friend sitting alongside him.
It was a moment too touching not to share, and so the Irishman tweeted:
“Heard something beautiful at the Sydney Swans game tonight,” he began.
The tweet captured national headlines, and a search was mounted for the young football fans.
“We love this and are trying to track down these boys,” the Swans appealed on social media. “They were in the Noble Stand Bay 45. If anyone can help us find them please get in touch!”
And find them they did. Jarryd Haines, 12, and Mark Smith, 13.
