One fellow fan Tweeted in with a request for a shoutout for her 59-year-old Dad who’s had to go into isolation and is feeling down – and the skipper reacted with a touching gesture.
Nobes urged Ian to stay strong and promised him that when all of this passes and the football starts again, he’ll send him a signed shirt – let’s hope he gets his shirt soon!
I don’t care what anyone says about Noble on the pitch of late, that’s a classy act from a classy man and it’s that kind of spirit and attitude around the club that will be missed the most when the 32-year-old does eventually decide to end an era and hang up his boots.
Here’s how other supporters reacted to the heart-warming moment…
Great gesture skipp 👏⚒
