Former Hull FC player Adam Maher, who is battling Motor Neurone Disease, has given a heartwarming message to the clubs supporters after his stay in England.
Maher came back to Hull last week with his family and was present at both the Hull Derby and the home opener against Castleford, with a fundraising dinner sandwiched in between the two games.
“On behalf of my myself, my wife, my children, family and friends, I would like to thank everyone involved on our stay in Hull from start to finish,” Adam’s wife Trudy posted on Facebook on behalf of the former back rower.
“The love and passion I have been shown since I arrived has made me the happiest man alive and I sure didn’t expect what I’ve received.
“I’m very honoured and very proud to have played for Hull FC who have a great history in rugby league. They have the most loyal and passionate supporters I have ever experienced.
“Walking the match ball out on Thursday night with my best mate was an amazing feeling that we will never forget.
“If Hull make the finals Knuckles and I will be back. Love Adam Maher.”
