Our latest kick saw us travel to the Weston Homes Community Stadium, where
12 year old Joe and 13 year old Mark, who are both Colchester United fans,
were our mascots for the day. They were nominated by staff at Lexden Springs
We met up with the duo at the main reception where they met the mascot
coordinator, Nathan, and were shown into the managers office to meet
Colchester’s manager, Joe Dunne, and into the home team dressing room to
meet and get autographs from the Colchester United players. They were then
led out of the tunnel and onto the pitch where they had the opportunity to
get autographs from the Peterborough United players as well. After this the
lads were taken over to the goal at the home end of the ground where they
had the opportunity to score a goal there.
At just before 3pm Joe and Mark returned to the tunnel, from where they
emerged accompanying the two teams prior to kick off, before finding their
seats for the match, which finished 1-0 to the home side.
Thank you to all at Colchester United for looking after Joe and Mark so well!
