The final Kicks of the season at Watford involved two young lads nominated by Watford Mencap, who we have worked with for many years now. As Watford had been promoted to the Premier League in 2015, the mascot places were in high demand, but the football club were very kind to us, and ensured we were able to reserve some before they went on sale.
The two boys nominated for the treat were Harrison and Kieron, who were really excited to be mascots at the game against Aston Villa. The boys waited near the entrance to the tunnel and were rewarded for their patience by meeting all of the players as they came past. They were also able to have their picture taken with manager Quique Sanchez Flores, who was happy to pose for a photo with them.
A coaching session on the pitch was next, followed by the excitement of walking out with the teams onto the pitch ready for kick off.
We would like to thank Kristian Hitchings nd all at Watford FC for their kindness and hospitality this season, and Sarah Fishwick from Watford Mencap for nomination the Kick recipients again for these games.
