It was a long trip down south to Bristol for our first kick at Ashton Gate, where 12 year old Josh and his 10 year old brother Daniel were our guests for the day. The boys were nominated by Children’s Hospice South West to take part in the day.
We met up with them and their dad Steve, sister Emily and some family friends. The boys started off their day with a visit to the dressing rooms where they met the Bristol City players and had photos taken with them. After this, we went with them to the club shop and bought them a full kit each plus one for Emily. Josh and Daniel were then taken back into the ground where they proceeded to have a kick about on the pitch.
Just before 3, they went into the tunnel and walked out onto the pitch with their favourite players and had a photo taken in the centre circle with the match officials and the captains of both teams. Finally Daniel and Josh took their seats for the match, which finished 3-0 to the away team, Peterborough United.
Thank you to everybody at Bristol City for looking after us so well!
