Dundee United first team players visited Tayside Children’s Hospital last week to bring a little Christmas cheer to patients and staff.

The squad arrived with gifts and spent time chatting with the children, posing for photos and signing autographs in an attempt to brighten the spirits of those unfortunate enough to be spending the Christmas period on a hospital ward.

Captain Mark Reynolds said, “The lads are all pleased to visit the hospital and collectively as a squad we raised the funds for the presents. The hope is that we can bring a little bit of happiness and joy to the kids.

“We are grateful to the staff for rearranging the visit as we had to change the date following the postponement of our game against Morton. The players appreciate the amazing job the staff do all year round, and we are also looking forward to meeting them.”

Chief Executive Grant Archibald said, “We are always delighted to welcome the players and officials from Dundee United to Ninewells at Christmas.

“Having to be in the hospital at Christmas time is never pleasant, but visits like this make the time more bearable for the children.

“We are very grateful to Dundee United for their generosity and for taking the time out of their busy training schedule.”
