“It’s my way of saying thank you to football for giving us such excitement and entertainment throughout lockdown, and for looking after our mental health and keeping our spirits up.

“It’s fantastic that grounds like Adams Park have been vaccination centres, helping thousands of people every day receive their jabs, and so I just wanted to make a visit and say thank you for keeping us going.”

Wanderers’ Head of Media and Marketing Matt Cecil said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Timmy and his friends to the ground at the end of a gruelling day of cycling across the region.

“Despite being an Oxford fan, Timmy’s not all bad and we sent him off with a gift of a signed Gareth Ainsworth cutout which we’re sure will take pride of place on his wall at home.

“We’ve been really proud to host the vaccination clinic multiple times each week for the past few months, welcoming local people for their life-changing protection against Covid-19, and have the utmost respect for the tireless work of all the NHS staff who’ve made it possible.”
