After meeting them and their families and presenting them both with brand new Man Utd kits we took them to the home of Posh, London Road, to watch the Peterborough Utd v Man Utd pre-season friendly. Here the boys were given a tour of the ground and were allowed access to the Posh players dressing room to get a few autographs and photos.
Next on the busy agenda was a coaching session on the pitch with the other mascots before the highlight of the day…..leading the teams onto the pitch with 9,000 football fans cheering and applauding as they did so.
Then it was up to the Noel Cantwell Suite to watch the match which saw Man Utd win 3-1 in the end.
The lads, their families and us at Free Kicks had an absolutely fantastic day which will stay in our memories for ever. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to our mission of creating these special days for special kids…and we certainly couldn’t have asked for two better recipients than Tim and Gareth.
