Tommi Miller, who was 8-years-old met some of the players on a visit to his beloved football club last year.

Tommi died nearly a fortnight ago after an unsuccessful attempt to carry out a bone marrow transplant.

After hearing the news on social media, Chelsea defender Terry decided to call the funeral director and pay the £1,600 costs.

Those attending Tommi's funeral will be asked to wear either Chelsea or Cambridge United strips.

The club has survived off-pitch financial problems which included one stalled takeover and potentially being wound up.

At the same time the club embarked on a record breaking run of wins, they're also in line to smash their record of matches without defeat.

On Saturday the Cobblers secured promotion from League Two after drawing 2-2 with Bristol Rovers.

An amazing end to what's been something of a rollercoaster season - both on and off the field.
