Wilbys touching tribute

Last updated : 25 October 2010

MK Dons striker Aaron Wilbraham was happy to get booked for the first time in his career on Saturday after his match-winning goal against Exeter. Wilbraham's grandmother Margaret died just 24 hours before the game and Wilbraham was booked for revealing a picture of the pair on his wedding day after he had found the net. He said: "I've never done it before for any other message but I'll take a booking to do that tribute for my Nana any day. "I just had to make sure I wasn't on a yellow to start with. "My dad died when I was younger so she basically brought me up. "She bought me my first pair of football boots from a charity shop for £2.50 and I scored 101 goals in them playing as an under-12 for Middlewich Town. The gaffer said I could miss the game but I knew that she would have wanted me to play and score so I was made up."
