We were back on the road to Ipswich for our next Kick, Joel was our mascot for the day nominated by Happy Days charity. It was a wet day in Suffolk as we met up with him and his dad outside Portman Road but that hadn’t stopped him being very excited at the prospect of the day ahead!
Joel was already wearing his new Town kit and raring to go and once the other mascots had arrived he was whisked off into the stadium to meet Mick McCarthy and the rest of the players. Then it was time for the moment Joel had been waiting for and to walk on the pitch with the team before kick off. After this the family took their usual seats in the stand to watch as the teams played out a 1-1 draw.
Many thanks to all at Ipswich Town FC especially Julie Bryant, mascot co-ordinator.
