Young Chelsea Foundation coach Tom Horrigan has been given the honour of presenting the Premier League trophy to Gary Cahill and John Terry on Sunday.

Blues legend Dennis Wise will kick off the celebrations at Stamford Bridge by walking the trophy out, before Horrigan takes over for the final leg.

The club nominated the 21-year-old coach as the Premier League Kicks Hero in recognition of his involvement with the social inclusion scheme.

Cahill and Terry will lift the trophy together following Chelsea's final game of the season against Sunderland, with the latter saying his goodbyes at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea confirmed themselves as Premier League winners on May 12, but have had to wait for their final home game of the season to properly celebrate their success. 

Horrigan has been involved with the club for a number of years, beginning his Premier League Kicks journey as a 12-year-old participant back in 2008.

Since then, he has gained several coaching qualifications as a volunteer, before joining as a coach when he was old enough.

His work has even been immortalised as a graphic novel, illustrated by Marvel Comics artist John McCrea, as an extra something to cherish.

Speaking ahead of Sunday, Horrigan said: 'I'm made up to be named the Premier League Kicks Hero for Chelsea. It's a fantastic honour and I love the comic book that's been drawn to show my journey through Kicks.

'It shows a lot of the most important moments in my life. This is after Chelsea also nominated me to receive the Peter Osgood award this year for my community work. It's all a bit surreal!

'Presenting the Premier League trophy to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge is a dream come true for me. I can't thank the club and the Premier League enough for allowing me to do it and it will be something to tell the grandkids one day.' 

Sportsmail also understands the Premier League wanted to include terminally-ill Sunderland fan Bradley Lowery in Sunday's trophy ceremony, but the six-year-old is not well enough to make the trip down to London.
