The day after Mason’s Kick at Ipswich we headed to the seaside for our third visit to Blackpool. Ila, who is 15, was nominated by Len Curtis at Donna’s Dream House in the town.
We met Ila and her family outside the stadium, she was proudly showing us her new Blackpool kit. Then it was time to go in to the ground, where she visited both dressing rooms, for pictures and autographs. I spoke to Posh player George Boyd in the week who remarked how chatty she was!
Ila led the team out with captain Barry Ferguson and joined in the fairplay handshake before kick-off, it was brilliant to see how enthusiastic and happy she was coming onto the pitch. She then took her seat in the stand to watch as Blackpool beat The Posh 2-1.
