Big hearted soccer star James McClean has stayed true to his word to help make a little Derry girl’s Christmas.

Back in September the Irish international pledged to buy a hand-cycle for little Kaylee who has spinabifda.

William Sweeney had set up the page to raise £1500 in the hope of getting his god-daughter Kaylee the bike as a Christmas present

But Irish international McClean quickly intervened to say he would cover the cost.

In a post he wrote: “Lad that 1500 for the bike, al pay it (sic)”

And now Kaylee has taken delivery of the trike , manufactured by Paediatric Equipment Specialists JohnPreston.co.uk

“We were delighted to hand over another Trike designed for children with special needs in Northern Ireland yesterday, and Kaylee was very happy as you can clearly see by her photograph!,” the firm posted online
