The last day of the Championship season took us to Pride Park for the third time. Our guest for the day was Hannah who was nominated by our good friend Maria Hanson from Derbyshire based charity, Me and Dee.
We met Hannah and her family in the club shop at the stadium, where we bought her a Derby County kit. Then we headed off to the main reception (which was actually the wrong place to be) but fate obviously took us there for a reason. As we were waiting there Hannah’s favourite member of her favourite pop group just happened to wander through on his way to watch the game! Niall from One Direction was happy to have his picture taken with her (even though his bouncer didn’t seem as happy) and this made both Hannah’s and her mum’s day!
After the chance meeting Hannah and her family went into the stadium where she met up with Rammy the Derby mascot to have a kick about on the pitch, a quick lap of the ground and then heading down the tunnel to lead the team out ready for kick off.
Hannah then took her seat with the rest of her family to watch as the Rams drew 1-1 with The Posh.
Thanks to all at Derby County for making the day possible, Maria Hanson as ever and also lady luck for the chance meeting with Niall!
