Ajax have made a dream come true for one fan. Eight-year-old Jay-Jay Willems was signed for the first team, and got to live the life of a footballing star.

After being diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, the Ajax foundation decided to intervene. They created a video of him being scouted at a training session, taking part in a gruelling press conference and even playing a game against NEC Brada.

The organisers even went as far as dropping the young lad off to his game in a Mercedes, to make the dream even more unreal.

In the video, Jay-Jay meets manager Frank De-Boer, who had some nice words to say.

He told reporters: "I would like to introduce a new player. Jay-Jay is a left forward and during training he got our attention.

'With his qualities we think he eventually can play with the first team."

Dutch TV channel Fox News also helped out to make the dream happen, putting forward a football pundit to say a few words about the potential star.

"Look at this guy from Ajax. Jay-Jay is a fast, smart, roguish player. He knows a lot about football, you can see that in the way he moves. 

Pay attention to this little guy, another hero is born at Ajax, Jay-Jay Willems."

The Ajax foundation do a lot to help children less fortunate than themselves, and this article will come as a heart-warmer to those who think clubs don't care about the fans of the club, as the Dutch club attempted to make them feel valued.

With the money around in football nowadays, it's moves like this that boost the popularity of clubs and it's something not only little Jay-Jay will remember for a long time, but also the readers of the story, giving Ajax a reputation that they'll be proud to never shrug off.
