The Spiders have invited young Scarlett Dougan, who was born with a rare heart condition, to the game as guest of honour and along with her brothers and sisters, she will lead out the teams.
Scarlett, who is 10 years old, was born with a complex congenital heart condition, hypoplastic right heart syndrome. Most babies with this condition are diagnosed before birth but Scarlett’s condition wasn’t discovered until she was more than four months old. She needed to have urgent, major surgery, and has since had a number of other operations. There is currently no cure for Scarlett’s condition and she may require a heart transplant when she is older.
