Our first Kicks of the season took place at the pre-season friendly and local derby between Northampton Town and Peterborough United at Sixfields Stadium.
Sisters Hollie and Abbie were nominated by Northampton Town Community Trust to be mascots for The Cobblers. We met up with them ahead of the game and they were already wearing their new kits. We were taken into the Players Lounge and the girls were then allowed to head off into the changing room to meet the players, pose for pictures and get autographs.
After that it was time to head down the tunnel to have a kick about on the pitch, they also got to meet some more of the players (including Hollie’s favourite Ben Tozer), as well as manager Adi Boothroyd. The girls then went back down the tunnel before emerging with the teams as they came out for kick off.
Finally they took their seats in the stand with the rest of the family as The Posh beat The Cobblers 1-0.
Thank you to Julia and all at Northampton Town for their help and hospitality.
