For our penultimate Kick of 2012 we were back at London Road for what turned out to be an amazing 5-4 victory for Peterborough United against Bolton Wanderers. Hayley was our mascot for the day, after being nominated by our friends at Sue Ryder Care at Thorpe Hall in the city.
Hayley, who is 12, came along to the match with dad Martyn, sister Lauren and friend Lesley and we met them in reception, along with mascot co-ordinator Simon. Hayley was given her new kit and quickly changed into it ready to begin the tour of the ground, not before meeting Santa in the David Seaman Suite. First port of call was the dressing rooms where she met her favourite player, Joe Newell, and Laura also had her picture with her favourite and our ambassador George Boyd. A quick visit to the referee’s room was followed by a tour of the family stand including the gym, executive boxes and Cantwell Suite.
Then it was time for a training session and kick about on the very wet pitch, before the whole family took their seats for the match.
As always thank you to all at Peterborough United for their support throughout the year and to Alison Toomey at Sue Ryder for nominating Hayley for her special day.
