Fantastic goodwill gesture to get Everton fans to Wembley

The football community rallied around a father and son to get them to Everton's FA Cup semi-final this evening

A day out in Wembley supporting your hometown club is part of what the FA Cup is all about, but that dream was almost snatched away from Everton supporter Dan and his son.

The two were supposed to head to London earlier today for the Toffee's FA Cup semi-final clash with Manchester United, but their coach never showed up, meaning the two would have to watch the game from home. 

Dan took to Twitter to express his disappointment and vent his frustrations about being let down, while also sharing an image of his heartbroken son. 




Following the tweets, many were quick to empathize with the two and as the story spread across the social networking site, Virgin Trains came in with an amazing goodwill gesture for the Goodison regulars, offering them a place on one of their London bound trains. 





A wonderful story that has even expanded outside of the football community, with Birmingham boxer Tony Bellew coming in with an offer of his own.
