A Twitter appeal from Wolverhampton Wanderers helps secure transport for an elderly supporter who required transport to home matches.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have used social media to help a 91-year-old supporter find transport for future home fixtures.
The Championship club don't play at Molineux again until Saturday, February 27 but that did not stop a swift response to the appeal made by the Black Country outfit on Twitter.
Can any fellow fan help the supporter out with a lift to home games? If so, please email: email@example.com.— Wolves (@OfficialWolves) February 19, 2016
It took just 16 minutes for Wolves to post a third tweet to inform their 139,000 Twitter followers that the long-time season ticket holder would be able to attend the club's upcoming fixtures.
Thank you for your swift and positive response. The supporter is now covered for travel to Molineux.— Wolves (@OfficialWolves) February 19, 2016
The gesture by Wolves is a clear example of how social media can be used in an effective manner, but if the club's recent home form is anything to go by, the supporter in question may not enjoy his Saturday afternoons at Molineux.
Kenny Jackett's side have failed to win any of their last three matches, while they currently possess the sixth worst home record in the division.
Given that they have performed better on away soil, maybe someone should suggest a place on the travel coach instead.
