We have established another new partnership this year, this time with Burton Albion Community Trust. We are sponsoring eight mascot packages there this season, these will be going to children who may not otherwise be able to attend a game and take part in this way.
The first two participants in this scheme were Sameer, 5, and Blake, 12. We caught up with them and their families on the pitch while they were taking part in some skills training with some Trust staff. Both boys looked the part in their new kits and were enjoying the experience, they were particularly looking forward to leading the team out onto the pitch prior kickoff.
Man thanks to Andy Taylor, from the Community Trust, and Jodie Barks of Burton Albion FC.
