The first day of the Championship season took us to Leicester City for the match against Peterborough United. Our mascot for the day was Morgan who was nominated by LOROS (Leicestershire and Rutland Organisation for the Relief of Suffering) and came along with his family.
We met Morgan outside the ground, he was all ready and very excited in his new kit, before he was whisked off into the stadium to meet the Leicester players and have a tour of the ground with his host, Darren. He and the other mascots then had a kick about on the pitch with Filbert Fox before walking out onto the pitch with….. and taking part in the teams’ fairplay handshake. Next was lining up with the captains and officials for photographs on the centre circle before kick off, then he returned to his seat to watch as Leicester ran out 2-0 winners.
We would like to thank Diane Morris at LOROS for nominating Morgan and everybody at Leicester City for their fantastic hospitality.
