A 16-year-old letter written by current Sunderland footballer Adam Johnson, has been found on a beach in Sunderland today.
The note had been placed in a glass bottle and presumably thown in the sea. It was addressed to the popular 90’s show Jim’ll fix it, where the 12-year-old outlines what he’d like Jimmy Savile to help fix.
The letter to the disgraced tv presenter, begins with the youngster saying what Savile means to him:
My name is Adam. I’m 12 years old and I live in Sunderland. First of all, I’d like to say that you’ve been an inspiration to me and I’m your biggest fan.
The self confessed “die-hard Peter Pan” enthusiast, initially asks Savile to “fix it” for him, to be like the popular Disney character:
“Please will you fix it for me to never grow up! I love being 12 and I love girls my own age. I never ever want to get older.”
Perhaps fearing his first request might be a little overly-ambitious, Johnson goes on to ask Savile to arrange a trial at his favorite club.
“If I absolutely have to grow up, please will you fix it for me to play for Man City? They’re my favourite team and the best in the world. I don’t care that they don’t have any money. They have Shaun Goater.”
A spokesman for Johnson’s camp, refused to comment on the letter or verify its authenticity. However The Sun newspaper, have broken away from their wall-to-wall Celebrity Big Brother coverage, to discover that Johnson attended the widely popular, ‘Jim’ll fix your kids’ Summer Camp as a youth. This “evidence” is strengthened by the following excerpt from Johnson’s letter:
“Can’t wait to see you and uncle Rolf again this summer. Should be loads of fun! I learned a lot last time, particularly about grooming. Even my parents said they noticed a big change in me after last year’s camp.”
The letter ends with Johnson completing the formalities of the coming year’s summer camp:
Enclosed is a cheque from my parents for this year, my measurements and 10 photos of me, as you requested.
