Lucky youngster meets Robbie Fowler for World Book Day
One lucky youngster met Robbie Fowler after he was spotted with a book at the Kassam Stadium for World Book Day.
A suporter called Noah was spotted reading just before kick-off ahead of the game against Shrewsbury last weekend.
Noah's school had tasked each pupil with getting a photo of themselves reading a book in the most unusual place for the annual charity event.
The Oxford United fan chose to read ‘The Boys From Up the Hill’, a pictorial history of the club, ahead of the game against Shrewsbury last weekend.

After the club noticed Noah doing this they invited him and his dad to meet the former Liverpool and England striker.
Noah was given a behind-the-scenes look at the manager’s office where he read his book to Karl Robinson and Fowler.
Fowler’s teenage son, Jacob, recently joined United’s academy as a scholar.
Karl Robinson said: “We were pleased to help, especially when he told us his teacher was a Swindon fan and his dad is a lifelong Liverpool supporter!
“It is always nice to help things like World Book Day and I hope the rest of the school have been busy finding other great places to read.”
World Book Day takes place on March 2 where every child in full-time education in the UK is given a voucher to be spent on books.
