The lifelong supporter moved to San Diego, California in 1983 but his love for the Club has never wavered.
Making the 5,400-mile trip with his sons, who have also been raised as Bluenoses, he was thrilled to be back at St. Andrew’s.
As a thank you for his support, he was surprised on arrival at the stadium with a personal greeting from Gary Gardner.
The Blues midfielder gifted Michael with a signed pennant that will take pride of place in his California home.
“This has been fantastic,” beamed the 70-year-old. “You’ve made my day!”
Keep Right On, Michael!
