Parents defend young Everton fan who was given Saints star Gaston Ramirez’s shirt

Daily Echo: Joel Medwell with the shirt Joel Medwell with the shirt

IT was the moment that saw a multimillion-pound Saints star celebrate with a young football fan.

Saints midfielder Gaston Ramirez took off his shirt and handed to a young spectator after scoring a 30-yard wonder goal when Saints played Everton at Goodison park.

But now the Uruguayan international’s kind gift to eight-year-old Joel Medwell, after his equalising goal in Southampton’s 2-1 defeat is at the centre of a row.

According to the young Everton supporter’s dad some journalists said £12m Ramirez was left “red faced” after Joel allegedly refused to give it back leaving him to finish the game wearing a shirt without his name or number.

Dad Darren said: “It was reported he would not give it back but that’s not the case. I think in the press everyone’s wondering why a Southampton player gave his shirt to an Everton supporter so they jumped to that conclusion.”

“What happened was Gaston Ramirez and some other players were warming up and some fans were giving them stick as they do. But my son was giving him the thumbs-up and saying ‘hello Gaston’.

“When he came on he scored and ran straight over to Joel, put the shirt into his hand and ran off.

“He gave him the shirt because he must have thought, ‘he was giving me the thumbs-up when everyone else was giving me stick’.”

The dad-of-three, who regularly attends home games with his son, added: “A Southampton player came over but didn’t ask for it and Gaston Ramirez certainly didn’t ask for it back. The stewards said to us ‘he gave it to you so you keep it’.

“Joel is delighted obviously. No one expected it. It was brilliant getting the shirt. It was just a great day. He’s not really bothered about what people are saying. He’s just delighted he got the shirt. He knows himself he didn’t steal it.”

Come on Joel Medwell, see the light and start supporting the super Saints! You know it makes sense.

Nice touch from Gaston. One of the better memories from that game.

How could have the national press and Merseyside press have reported this before Xmas?

The story was put out by the Mirror, who can't help making things up on 30th December, complete fabrication.... I mean, as if a scouser would steal anything.

It was a nice gesture, especially seeing that little lad so pleased at the time raising his arms in the air with delight. It reminds you of what football is all about. Shame that the media have chosen to spoil a precious moment in pursuit of a non story.

Everton fan defends son after national papers say he stole star's shirt.

Joel Medwell with his mum Joanne and the football shirt Southampton player Gaston Ramirez gave him Joel Medwell with his mum Joanne and the football shirt Southampton player Gaston Ramirez gave him

An Everton-mad dad whose son was given a Southampton shirt during the clubs' recent Premier League clash has hit back after national papers branded the youngster a thief.

Gaston Ramirez was reported to have thrown his shirt into the crowd at Goodison Park after coming off the bench on Sunday to equalise for the south coast team.

Some journalists said he was left “red faced” after a boy in the crowd refused to give it back leaving him to finish the game wearing a shirt without his name or number.

But Darren Medwell, whose eight-year-old son Joel was the lucky recipient of the shirt, said nothing could be further from the truth.

The season ticket holder told the ECHO: “It was reported he wouldn’t give it back but that’s not the case. I think in the press everyone’s wondering why a Southampton player gave his shirt to an Everton supporter so they jumped to that conclusion.”

The Whiston-based businessman said: “What happened was Gaston Ramirez and some other players were warming up and some fans were giving them stick as they do. But my son was giving him the thumbs up and saying hello Gaston.

“When he came on he scored and ran straight over to Joel, put the shirt into his hand and ran off.

“He gave him the shirt because he must have thought, 'he was giving me the thumbs up when everyone else was giving me stick'.”

Darren, 46, said he couldn’t believe it when people started reporting that his boy, who plays for Whiston Juniors in the St Helens and Knowsley league and South Liverpool in the Belle Vale league, had refused to hand the shirt back.

The dad of three, who regularly attends home games with his son, said: “A Southampton player came over but didn’t ask for it and Gaston Ramirez certainly didn’t ask for it back. The stewards said to us he gave it to you so you keep it.

“Joel is delighted obviously. No one expected it. It was brilliant getting the shirt. It was just a great day. He’s not really bothered about what people are saying. He’s just delighted he got the shirt. He knows himself he didn’t steal it.”

The match ended with a double delight for little Joel as he saw Romelu Lukaku fire home what proved to be the winner just three minutes after Ramirez gave away his shirt.

WTF? Have you two even read the story? It's not rocket science.
Gaston was getting some stick from Everton fans on the sidelines before the game but little Jake welcomed him, called his name and gave him the thumbs up. When he scored, Gaston reciprocated by running straight over and handed him the shirt. He didn't throw it and no-one asked for it back, that was a lie made up by the Daily Mirror for headlines. Jake was over the moon, still is, and his dad was happy for him but has had to defend his son from totally fabricated accusations
Why call him a brat?, why should his dad buy a Saints shirt, he's an Everton fan? What's so complcated about this that you don't understand and see fit to make stupid comments about something pleasant. Jeez!

When he scored, Gaston reciprocated by running straight over and handed him the shirt. He didn't throw it and no-one asked for it back, that was a lie made up by the Daily Mirror for headlines. Jake was over the moon, still is, and his dad was happy for him but has had to defend his son from totally fabricated accusations Why call him a brat?, why should his dad buy a Saints shirt, he's an Everton fan? What's so complcated about this that you don't understand and see fit to make stupid comments about something pleasant. Jeez! STID st1halo

Why doesn't Daddy go out and buy a shirt for his brat?
Gaston did this deliberately I am sure of that. The story explains the mystery to me of why GR would give his short ot a scouser. But more pertinently, why would the dad buy a saints shirt for his "brat" (who actually looks like a pretty cool kid). I wonder why Lovren went and asked for it back? Like Gaston's gonna need it after the end of the month?
Exactly - why would his father buy a Saints shirt? So anything that's free you accept with open arms. That doesn't sound very "cool" to me.
WTF? Have you two even read the story? It's not rocket science.
Gaston was getting some stick from Everton fans on the sidelines before the game but little Jake welcomed him, called his name and gave him the thumbs up. When he scored, Gaston reciprocated by running straight over and handed him the shirt. He didn't throw it and no-one asked for it back, that was a lie made up by the Daily Mirror for headlines.

Listen, perhaps 'brat' was a bit strong, but you don't know what people have suffered and are suffering in life. Writing a very personal attack against someone you don't know is very upsetting. Please don't do it - the f words are very threatening.

When you have held a dying wife in your arms then you will understand what life is about.
