Boy, 3, defies odds to score at Sincil Bank after brain damage diagnosis

Lovely gesture from the Imps

A three-year-old Imps fan diagnosed with severe brain damage defied the odds to achieve his dream of scoring a goal at Sincil Bank.

Oscar survived despite his life support machine being turned off three years ago.

His dad had some leg braces made to help him kick a ball, so that Oscar could achieve his dream.

Lincoln City welcomed him onto the pitch at half-time of Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup match against Everton at Sincil Bank, which ended 4-2 in the visitors’ favour.

The crowd were fully behind Oscar as he kicked the ball into the net.

Quad cerebral palsy, Infantile Spasms, severe reflux, global developmental delay, microcephaly, dystonia, hip operations and tub feeding are just some of things Oscar and his family have had to endure.

Although he can’t sit, walk, talk and eat, Oscar has a strong personality and is described as a happy, cheeky boy.
