Each and every person associated with Northampton Saints- directors, management, staff and the players- felt really sad when they got to know that their youngest fan, Luis Ghaut passed away on the 23rd of September, 2014. This young boy had successfully inspired many people who are a part of Northampton Saints.
Luis was suffering from a very rare kind of bone cancer called the Osteosarcoma and his family had approached Northampton Saints in order to get support for the awareness and fundraising activities associated with Osteosarcoma. This is how Luis Ghaut became a known face for Northampton Saints.
This young boy from Upton used to attend the training sessions of the rugby team and some of the players had become extremely close to him and his family members.
Christian Day said that Luis was just like a comrade and a fellow player. He never got upset about anything. Day was heartbroken to hear the news about Luis’s death.
Luis had actually become the mascot for Northampton Saints in the month of May during the 2014 Aviva Premiership finals against Saracens. This was something extraordinary and it proved the determination of the boy because Luis had undergone surgery and chemotherapy few days before the Premiership finals.
Tom Wood had commented after the Premiership finals on the bravery of the boy and how it had motivated the Saints in every possible manner.
Northampton Saints extended their deepest condolences and regrets to Luis’s relatives and friends.
At the home match of the round 6 of the Aviva Premiership which is going to be played against Sale Sharks, Northampton Saints are going to pay tribute to the brave boy.
Lee Dickson said that Luis Ghaut was a part of the Northampton Saints’ family. The entire Premiership season will now be dedicated to Luis and they are going to do everything for this little man only.
