Our next mascot at Middlesbrough this season was young Charlie, aged 5. Last year he had to miss out when his two older siblings, Isaac and Isabelle, took part as he was too little, so we promised him he could enjoy the same treat this season.
The game we arranged for him had originally been set for a Saturday afternoon but was moved due to broadcasting schedules to the Friday evening. This meant that the weather was not so good but did allow Charlie to appear on tv leading the teams out onto the pitch just before kick off.
Despite the weather, Charlie still enjoyed himself and the family were able to watch Middlesbrough win 2-1 against Wolves.
Many thanks to all at Middlesbrough FC for their help arranging the evening.
