Life-long Everton fan Richard Wee travelled all the way from Malaysia to watch his team for the first time only to see the game called off an hour before kick-off.
Well Everton have gone out of their way to ensure it wasn't a wasted trip.
Last night he met the manager Roberto Martinez and the players.
Today they've treated him to a tour of Goodison Park in the company of Blues legend Graeme Sharp.
Richard clearly enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame in front of the cameras and was even presented with his own replica shirt.
