Streatham Redhawks proud to wear fan’s logo on jerseys - South West Londoner

A seven-year-old fan of Streatham Redhawks ice hockey was brought to tears when he found out his favourite team would be wearing his logo on their shirts.

Since the start of last season, the Streatham Redhawks have had a distinctive heart-and-ribbon design on every single one of their jerseys, in honour of Mickey Pickett, an ultra-fan of the side with a rare genetic bowel condition.

Mickey, known affectionately to everyone on the team as ‘Little Mickey’, was diagnosed at birth with Hirschsprung’s disease, which meant he lacked nerves in his lower intestines.
