Little Megan has a party in Panama with the GAWA

Five year old Megan Lewis travelled across the world with her parents to join the Green and White Army in Panama and Costa Rica for our tour of Central America. 

It was a fantastic effort for all fans that made the immense journey to Central America at the end of May but for P1 pupil Megan who did it while stealing the hearts of the GAWA and locals alike it was really something special. 

Her father Michael said: "She has been a season ticket holder from the start of the World Cup 2018 campaign. This will have been her third away match after Oslo.

"She has made friends for life and everyone has been happy to have her by their side, the players and Irish FA staff have been great.  Myself and my wife Nicola can’t believe how much attention she has got, my phone hasn’t stopped since."

Megan's positive attitude proved to be very uplifting for fans and players alike. So much so that after the Panama game Stuart Dallas and Corry Evans went straight up to her in the crowd to give her their match shirts. 

Her dad said: "She is donating her signed Dallas top to Grange Park Primary school and it will be used to raise funds for the school. Evans one is staying with us, Evans was amazing and stood and had a chat and got a photo with Megan."

When we asked Megan how much she was enjoying her trip there were smiles all round. 

She said: "It's good and much fun. Mummy doesn’t go all the time, just to buy chips.

It was good meeting the players. Josh is my favourite as he is from Bangor!"
