Another organisation we have linked up with for the first time this seaosn is Action For Family Carers, based in Essex; they nominated two young lads to us who wanted to be mascots at Colchester Utd.
Lenny, 9 and Luke, 11, were accompanied by their families and started the day by collecting their new kits from the club shop. This was followed by a visit to the home dressing room to meet the Colchester players to collect autographs and photos with them, and a kickabout on the pitch while both teams were warming up.
Finally Luke and Lenny walked out with their favourite players onto the pitch, ahead of kickoff, stopping to have their photos taken with the match officials before returning to their families.
Huge thanks to Anna Varnai-Clarke from AFFC, and all at Colchester Utd.
