Our mascots received a traditionally warm welcome at Crewe Alexandra FC, when they attended the game v Peterborough United in November.
We met Kyran and Melissa outside the club shop, before heading in to get them kitted out in their new Crewe Alex strips. Next stop was to one of the lounges, so they and their families were in prime position to meet each player as they headed into the dressing room, where they happily stopped for a chat, to sign autographs and to pose for photos.
Next stop was a quick tour behind the scenes, followed by a kickabout on the side of the pitch, whilst the teams were warming up. Finally, Melissa and Kyran took their places in the tunnel, before walking out with the team, ahead of the start of the game.
Our thanks go to Kate Watson, from Caudwell Children, who nominated both to be mascots, and to Melvin and all at Crewe Alexandra, for their outstanding hospitality.
