A TERMINALLY ill schoolboy will get to fulfill a life-long dream this week when he sees his football team play a European clash.

Liam Greenwood will travel to Wales this week with parents Claire and Martin to see his beloved Kilmarnock FC play against Connah’s Quad Nomads.

The couple are determined to see the 11-year-old Elderbank pupil realise his dreams after being given the devastating news that Liam suffers from the same terminal disease as his big sister Jessica, 12.

The tragic siblings have both been diagnosed with Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia (PCH) – a condition caused by mutations in certain genes passed on from parents.

The illness has left Jessica unable to walk, talk, swallow or communicate and the James MacFarlane School pupil is currently receiving palliative care.

Last week we told how the family were heart-broken to learn that Liam also has the rare condition.

After being dealt the devastating blow the couple vowed to make sure their children get to realise as many of their dreams in the time they have left.

Claire said: “Liam has always been football-daft and he loves Killie. He was lucky enough to be the Killie mascot a couple of months ago but to see them play in a European match is a huge dream for him.

“Jessica loves Little Mix and Ed Sheeran so it would be amazing for her to see or meet them. I am going to do everything I can to make their dreams a reality.This is about making memories while we can because eventually, that is all we’ll have left.”
