Oscar was the recipient of the first of five mascots we have arranged at Middlesbrough FC this season. He was another child nominated to us by local charity, Remembering Rebecca, who are based in Stockton-on-Tees.
As one of the team mascots, Oscar got to meet his favourite player, Grant Leadbitter, as well as the usual opportunity to warm up on the Riverside pitch in his new Middlesbrough kit. He had predicted a 3-0 victory for the home team before the game and, actually, wasn’t too far wrong. Oscar and his family were able to watch the Boro comfortably beat Championship newcomers, MK Dons 2-0.
Many thanks to Gemma Sands, from Remembering Rebecca, and all at Middlesbrough FC for their help.
